Successful Yarn Substitution with Kira K



WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

It can be nerve-wracking to switch the yarn on a project but sometimes necessary.  Learning how to pick a successful substitute yarn means you'll never have to abandon a pattern written for a discontinued yarn, knit a sweater too warm for the climate or choose from a line of colors you don't like.  We'll talk about all of the considerations with a special focus on fiber content and yarn construction.

  • 2-3 knit or crochet patterns for which you'd like to find substitute yarn.
  • Paper and pen/pencil for taking notes.
