Question: Will THIS yarn work with THIS pattern?
I love this pattern: but it calls for DK yarn and US Size 5 DPNs. I would love to do the sock pattern in Lisa Souza's Sock! Merino which has a gauge of 8 sts/inch on US Size 1 or 2 DPNs. I'm not advanced enough in my sock knitting to know what (or if) adjustments should be made for the pattern. Can I just follow the pattern as written as long as I get the gauge recommended on my yarn? Thanks for the help.

If you try to get 5.5 stitches per inch with your yarn, you'll have a very open, holey fabric.

You might be able to double the yarn for the same gauge.
