How Do You Substitute a Yarn in a Pattern?
How do you substitute a yarn given in a pattern?? I know it should be the same weight yarn, but what if the stitch per inch doesn't match??

Thanks a bunch!!!

If the gauge doesn't match, use a different size needle. Go up if you have too many sts/inch; go down if you don't have enough.
