DROPS Yarn Groups

Looking for a challenge? Try a different DROPS yarn than the one suggested in the pattern! All DROPS patterns can be made in different DROPS yarns, and the easiest way is to choose yarn from the same Yarn Group. Working this way will give you a much bigger selection of patterns to choose from, and will allow you to get interesting new textures!

You can also try working with yarn from a different Yarn Group on your pattern by replacing the yarns as explained here.

Note! Recommended needle size and knitting tension are meant as a guideline for working in stocking stitch. Knitting tension and needle size may vary in specific designs for different stitch patterns and for different purposes (for example, socks are worked on a tighter gauge and with smaller needles than lacy shawls).

Find out which yarn group your chosen yarn or yarn combination belongs to in the overview below.
