What do you think about holding yarn double? Or triple?

It’s true, working with multiple strands at the same time can feel awkward at first. A bit like walking two boisterous puppies - one is hard enough! But holding yarns together is a popular trend for good reason. Benefits include:

1. Using up stash
2. Playing with color
3. Changing fabric texture
4. Crafting with larger needles/hooks
5. Making a plusher, squishier finished fabric

Did you know holding together two strands of fingering weight yarn will get you a DK or worsted gauge? Just take the yardage required for DK or worsted and double (because you'll need that length of two strands). Here are some patterns we think would be incredible worked with yarn held double!
