I want to make this baby blanket
. The pattern calls for you to use 5 skeins of this yarn
. This brand isn't available at any of the craft stores where I live so I want to substitute a different brand.
Please explain to me as if I were a simpleton what I need to make match up between this yarn label and the yarn label of my substitute so that the blanket will turn out correctly.
