The Secrets of Yarn Substitution
Curious or concerned about making yarn substitutions that work? Finding a good yarn to substitute for a knitting project is more than just finding a yarn with the right gauge. In this class, Jillian will walk you through the process you need to make successful substitutions. Together you’ll investigate sheep breeds, woolen, and worsted yarns, ply, grist and color, and see how each yarn component affects your knitted fabric. Learn why swatching is a knitter’s secret weapon for choosing the perfect yarn for a project.
Digging into the details of yarn construction, we’ll make sure that any yarn you choose will have the right hand, stitch definition, and look for the pattern you’re making. After taking this class substituting yarns will be a snap!
