Substitute Yarn for Bramwell Artistic?

Posted on

My pattern calls for Bramwell’s Artistic. I have various types of other yarns e.g. Hush Knit, sable crepe, Cascade, etc and am not sure if any of these can be used please advise or recommend.

You can normally find some on ebay if you keep an eye or Yeoman are currently making there own version called Aurora which is very similar to it.

Hello
The main thing is to knit a tension swatch! As long as your yarn can match the tension of the pattern any yarn will do!
Yarns do vary in the way they hang etc. though so if it is for a skirt you may want to find a yarn that hangs well!
