Thanks in advance!

So i am planning on knitting this with this. Could someone who knows more about yarn substitution than me please tell me if this is a good idea or not?

And while you're at it, what color is better for this pattern? The Coral or the Green?

I like the idea of it.. Personally, I would go for the green. Can't wait to see it!

The yarn should be a fine substitution... do a gauge swatch, you might have to change needle sizes, but probably not. As for the colour, I like them both (I'm kind of a green and pink girl myself...) so pick whichever one you like best!

The yarn looks beautiful. Check the tension (gauge) of the pattern and compare it to the listed tension for the yarn. If they don't match, you can try swatching with a similar yarn you already have lying around using different needle sizes to see if you can make it work. I would say go for the coral - it is delicate and summery.

The yarn is the pattern is a bit finer but if you can get gauge with it it should work.
