  1. Hi all, Well I am back again with another question..... I finished my last scarf project (which didn't turn out too great and need to get new yarn now... ) but I am now about to start the awareness ribbon shawl for my mom again and well I stumbled on something in a book.... The pattern I am using is using the Red Heart Super Saver yarn, which I don't really like because it's a bit coarse and synthetic feeling to me. Anyways, I bought a different yarn, same weight, both were worsted, the only difference was the brand and color.. Well I was reading a crochet book this morning (that I got years ago) and just stumbled onto a part that said, "You'll need to use a yarn similar to the one the pattern calls for" and then it says later on "A loosely spun yarn will look different from a yarn with a tighter twist". It hit me like a ton of bricks ... Does this mean that all the yarn I just bought and wound into a ball is too loosely wound that I can't use it for this project? I know Red Heart's Super Saver yarn is spun pretty tightly so I was wondering if I can't use it now or if I should just go for it (using the help and improv ideas that was given to me from you all on here before) and try making the shawl anyways? Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Here's the link to the pattern I am using again in case it'll be able to help at all! : http://naztazia.com/
