If you are using a striped yarn, it might reverse the order of the stripe sequence, unless you knit one pulling from the center, the other pulling from the outside.
If it is a plain stitch, there is actually a difference when one looks at a piece of knitting... you can tell the direction of the knitted rows.
but would it be noticeable? only an experiment will tell.
If it is a pattern stitch, it may be more apparent.

Seems to me it would work... it's yarn, just because it is configured different now (knitted) rather than in skeins, hanks, balls or whatever, there is nothing that has been done to change it materially. Just curious, why do you weigh the skeins? Just to know how much yarn (in grams or ounces) that you used? Just because you want to know, or is there a need for that information for some other reason?

The lunch you listed has no protein (unless there is a little in the bread... and bread usually has some milk in it)
Children need protein. Does the school offer suggestions about what healthy things children can bring?
I am not unsympathetic to those with allergies but this seems almost unmanageable for the majority.

I assume you pm'd the folks from your previous post about this....
It is frustrating... good luck.
Have you considered contacting the manufacturer directly?
There is one listed for sell/trade... but try the others too...

Many people keep at least 2 lifelines going.... kind of like wearing suspenders and a belt.... but you are oh, so grateful should one safety net fail.

The info in your pattern is the gauge to use. The ball band is just a guideline.

Keep changing needles (size and/or material) until you achieve the pattern gauge or much closer...
for a child's sweater, if it is a bit bigger is fine... but you don't want it to be huge.
Your present gauge will increase the size by 25%

Well, I wash everything before gifting.... my hands have oils, etc, dust in the air.... so, yes, wash it. Then you'll know what it looks like after laundered.

I've made a bunch of these with P&C .... yes, washing... rinsing until the water is clear. Brighter colors almost always have some color wash out. use a color grabber.

$8 for 127 yards seems pricey to me.... that's a bit over 25 yards for each of the 5 colors... that Pantone designers have deemed coordinate.
the "braid" is a marketing gimmick (IMO)... they are 5 separate small balls of yarn.

Anxiety, PTSD, etc benefit from these. I have one and love it.
I realized that when I go to the dentist and they put that heavy apron on me for taking xrays, how calm I felt.... sometimes I asked (and they would) let me keep it while work was being done.
They can be made as others have pointed out. I purchased mine. The sites will give recommendations about the weight relative to age, body weight, etc.
