Change in Yarn...Should I change needle size?
I'm confused over a pattern. The pattern is for the "Pepper" shawl on The Daily Knitter. It calls for Lang Yarns "Romance" which is impossible to find. However, if I use a worsted weight yarn do I change the size of the needle? It calls for size US 15 should or could I use 13? It calls for 100 stitches do I increase the amount of stitches to cast on?

The only way to really know is to do a gauge swatch. No one likes to do them, but they are important ESPECIALLY for clothing and if your end product relies on gauge.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
