I want to make the "Ladders & Ropes Cardigan" from a booklet called "Knitted Sweaters for Her". Here is a picture of the sweater from Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ropes-cardigan
The pattern calls for Lion Brand yarn Kool Wool, which is discontinued. Can I substitute using 2 strands of Red Heart Soft yarn for this?? Since I've never seen Kool Wool in person, I'm not sure how thick it is or how the 'feel' of it is. My dad wants his sweater in brown and I couldn't find any browns I liked in LB yarns in the store like Jiffy or Wool Ease Chunky.
Let me know if you think I would be able to use 1 or 2 strands of RH Soft instead of the Kool Wool.
