And another booga question...

To double or not to double (the yarn that is)?

Anyone done one both single and double stranded? Is the double substantially more sturdy than the single?

I have friends who have finished several boogas and made them just slightly larger. They used single strand Noro, and the bags are fairly sturdy. I think it would be awfully hard to get your Noro colors to line up exactly.

My plan, when I finish the supersize momstrosity, is to make quite a few boogas as gifts. I am going to double strand on the bottom with a matching yarn - in lambs pride or something a bit more economical than Noro. Then go on up the sides with the noro. I can't take credit for this idea - I am going to somewhat follow these directions:

She says this will only take 2 skiens of Noro. I think in order to get the bag size I want, if I make it larger, will take 4 skeins if I just use Noro - and since I am making as gifts and you never know what people will think.......
