What's the difference between a sport yarn and a worsted yarn?
There is a pattern I want to do from knitpicks and it doesn't call for the sport yarn, but it comes in prettier colors. The fiber content is the exact same. I don't know if that makes a difference.
The Sport yarn info is:
Gauge: 6 sts = 1" on #3 - 5 needles (3.25mm-3.75mm)
Amount: 110 yards/50 gram ball
And the Worsted yarn info is:
Gauge: 4.5 - 5 sts = 1" on #6 - 9 needles (4.0mm-5.5mm)
Amount: 75 yards/50 gram ball
Obviously it's different, but would it be possible to substitute this yarn?
The pattern recommends US 11 (8mm) 32” circular needles.
