I suck at figuring out yarns to substitute for patterns.

Would Patons Classic Merino be a good substitute for Knitty's Fetching??  I have a ton of it that I got on sale and would LOVE to use it up by making a few Fetching's for Christmas presents.

Here's the link:  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html

Your help is GREATLY appreciated!

I would think so.  If you have a stash of Classic Merino (which makes me jealous btw) you could try it.  If you like the results, there you go!  Christmas is taken care of!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Ahhhhhh, just imagine how soft and warm and wonderful these would feel on your hands made from the Classic Merino.

I'd give it a go, cos remember, you can always frog it later!

I've used Classic Merino for mittens and they've turned out very nicely.
