Indicated needle size and knitting tension are only meant as recommendations and may vary according to specific design and/or individual knitting techniques.

Yarn qualities with the same or nearly same knitting tension can be used for the same patterns.

You may also mix the various yarn qualities as follows:

For example: Two strands Alpaca create the same knitting tension and thickness as one strand Alaska.

2 strands A = 1 strand C
3 strands A = 1 strand D
4 strands A = 1 strand E
2 strands C = 1 strand E
2 strands E = 1 strand F
