Class Details:
This class will help knitters master the mysteries of yarn substitution. We’ll start with gauge, then cover the various weights of yarn (fingering to super bulky), discuss the relationship of weight to yardage and plies, and look at fiber and yarn characteristics that affect substitution (e.g., drape, elasticity, weight, halo). We will also consider color choice and walk through how to estimate quantities. We’ll finish by walking through some real-life examples by selecting potential substitute yarns for real patterns.
