Hi Everyone

I want to crochet a pattern requiring super bulky yarn which is a number 6 weight. I would like to get rid of some of my worsted stash which is a number 4 weight. Can I just use 2 strands?

I think you will need 3 strands of ww to attain super bulky, but do a swatch to be sure.

Here's something someone posted recently about combining 2 or 3 strands and the results -- it is a PDF that has been scanned for malware, etc and should be safe
As someone else said... do a gauge swatch....
