Can anyone tell me the purpose of using a lightweight yarn for a cardigan pattern but using 2 strands.......I really can't see the point but then I am somewhat uneducated when it comes to yarns so looking for enlightenment here with all you experienced people
I was going to use a different yarn and knit a test square to see how it worked out as I don't have any 3 ply yarn in my stash but just curious as to why you would knit with 2 strands. Curiously I've just discovered the pattern on Ravelry and it suggests 4ply or Fingering despite saying 3ply on original pattern.....no wonder I get confused
This is the pattern.Cascade Heritage Silk Short Sleeve Lace Cardi FW 159
