So I would like to make this as a baby blanket (the second chevron one) http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/...ft-merino.html
but the merino yarn is $19/hank and I wanted to use a less expensive option.
I saw today on FB that this yarn is on sale: http://www.yarn.com/webs-knitting-cr...pr-header-3669
but it's a cotton/bamboo blend.
Do you think that this would be a good substitute and/or would I have to double up on the cotton yarn? I am not good at telling the difference, thank you!
