Calorimetry question
The pattern calls for 93 yds of a certain yarn which I believe is worsted. However, I want to sub Brown Sheep Handpaint Originals which is only 88 yards. Is this possible? Will I have to modify the pattern? Or can I use a different needle size?

Thanks!

You could go up a couple needle sizes but CO less sts to make it the same size.

Yep, they've used anywhere from 80-100 sts for the CO, and many did less repeats of Row 5 so it wouldn't be as wide.

No don't! Someone else may have the same problems and be too shy to post. Think of all the others you'd deprive of my sage advice....
