help with a yarn substitution please........
Hello, I'm still fairly new to knitting and would really appreciate some assistance. I'm wanting to make a childs sweater from "Animal Knits" by Zoe Mellor. It's telling me to use Rowan Handknit DK Cotton 50gm balls. I'd like to consider using a different yarn. If I use the same gauge but with a wool yarn can you think of any reason (other than needing to be handwashed) that would interfere with this? I'd like to buy "Knit Picks Merino Style DK yarn" as a substitute. I really would like some help before I purchase it from someone who's experienced with knitting and changing yarns. Thank you.......first post by the way! Looks like a fun forum......Lisa123
