Hi everyone, and a yarn substitution question....

Hi everyone!

I'm absolutely in love with this pattern, and I can't wait to get started on it. I'm trying to stick to yarn already in my stash, though--so my question is, do you think KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud (a laceweight yarn), doubled up, would work out?

I'm not even sure that you would have to double up! Do a small swatch and see if you like the fabric. It should work up, just super open and light as a cloud!

I think it would be fine single. It is hard to see the stitches with one strand, 2 would complicate your life so! It will be a more openly lacy pattern..I am using mohair, single strand. It looks real good.

In fact, I think one of the yarns used in the pattern (the fluffy one) is a laceweight yarn. I'm using fingering myself and it's looking fine!
