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.

Hi, It will probably work fine. Check your gauge to see if its the same or close. If its close it will be fine. If its a little heavier yarn, your blanket will be a little larger or a lighter yarn the blanket will be a little smaller. But most of all don't mix the 2 yarns together. It may make one row longer than the other and the blanket will get wavy.

Hope this helps.
