Get Knitting: Yarn Substitution

Have you ever crafted something that did not turn out how you wanted?  Are you searching for the right yarn to use with a pattern you love?  Do you have yarn you adore and need a great pattern for it?  Has the yarn specified for your pattern been discontinued?  We have all been there!  This is a demonstration show-and-share class where we will explore how to shop for and substitute other yarn for your projects.  We will discuss yarn types, weights and fibers, aesthetics, structure (loftiness, hand, drape), gauge, and swatching, as well as how to determine appropriate quantities for your projects and some real life example case studies where yarn was substituted (some that worked, others that did not).  Bring yarn and patterns that have been eluding you - I can help!

By signing up for a class you agree to our class policies.

Requirements: Yarn you are trying to find a pattern for Pattern(s) you are trying to find yarn for Something for note taking Any yarn substitution case study project(s) you want to share (good or bad)
