Hi there!  I'm stock-piling patterns that I plan to try and accomplish in the next year...or at least start on.  Several of them call for linen yarn in different weights.  My question is, as I'm not a huge fan of linen, can I sub a cotton in the same weight?  Most of the patterns I've looked at are lace, for reference.  TIA!   Grin

Yarn substitutions can be made, just know that the resulting fabric might not behave exactly the same way (good references on the differences are the Knitter's Book of Yarn and No Sheep for You. (check your library for them).
