Somewhere, I ran across a guide for combining yarns, such as a strand of fingering weight and a strand of sport weight. What is the result? Are there other combinations that result in something that can be used in a published knitting pattern?
Shibui has a mix sheet here:
It’s for their yarns, of course, but can be a very good guide for achieving a gauge or look.
Thanks. It is very interesting and I have printed it out.
I also found “Chic Knits Knit Blog - How to combine multiple strands of yarn for a new larger gauge”.
I need to save both of them. I have oodles of fingering yarn, spun from my CVM sheep and would like to combine. I think that I will just put two together to see what kind of DK, or worsted, fabric I get. I like that Shibui tells you what size needle to start with.
This would also work for all of that stash that we all have. It would make pretty marled yarn.
I tried to find a link for the chart from Chic Knits to include. Glad that you have it, too.
