substitute yarn--gauge on label or gauge in pattern?
I am trying to substitute yarn in a pattern. The pattern calls for Lana Grossa Pastello and I want to use Lana Grossa Mega Stoppino. Both yarns show on the label a gauge of 13 st per 4 inches. I wanted to get some opinions as to whether this substitution would work. The Pastello is cotton/microfiber and the Mega is 65wool/35acrylic.
So, does this sound like a good substitution, since the gauge on the label is the same? Or should I be going by the gauge stated in the pattern? Thanks for your help,
