How to modify pattern requiring knitting with 2 strands of yarn
Hi all,

I'm a knitting beginner, and really want to try the "Petunia the Piglet" pattern on the Bernat website.

It calls for knitting with 2 strands of yarn, but I prefer to knit with 1.

Any ideas how to go about modifying the pattern?

I was told to use a smaller needle, and that as long as the knitting is tight enough to hold the stuffing, it should be fine. Is that correct?

Thanks for your help!!

Yep, that's essentially correct, but... you would have a smaller Petunia too. You could use the same needle and thicker yarn to get the same size.
