Knitting With Two Strands Of Yarn

Sometimes your yarn might be too thin for your project.

In that case, it’s easy to use two strands of yarn knit together to achieve the thickness you want.

I often use two strands of yarn together if the yarn is DK (for 4mm / US 6 needles) and I want a chunkier look, I may put two or more together and use bigger knitting needles.

Using more than one strand of yarn is also good if you want to work with more than one coloured yarn at a time.
