To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

If you get 5 stitches to the inch with whatever yarn you use, the width of your project should be the same. However, you did not give a row gauge so the height may differ and I would expect the drape to differ dramatically.

Using worsted weight yarn for a sport weight pattern at the same gauge should give you a denser, "stiffer" fabric. Afghans are often times knit to a somewhat looser gauge so that the finished product has more drape.

Try swatching to see if you like the fabric.
