In theory, if the guage matches ... you should be good to go. But then again, still ... not all yarns behave the same. :thinking:

I think it's worth a try. They would look cute in 'suede'. For a kid that doesn't walk, your baby will have the best-dressed feet in town!!

I already had that idea, and tried it. LB suede is way too thick. I couldn't get the gauge small enough to match. I made a bootie anyway, squeezing in sts the best I could. The bootie still turned out way too big. :(

I agree with Silver. I am using the Lion Suede for something right now and it's very thick and bulky.
