Learning how to pick a substitute yarn successfully means that you’ll never have to abandon a pattern written for a discontinued yarn, or knit with fiber that doesn’t suit 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. This vital information will assure that you are able to make the right choice for alternate yarns — whether you’re in a yarn shop, shopping on line, stash diving, or even creating handspun yarns.

Successful Yarn Substitution

Wonderful with a ton of valuable information regarding yarns. I thought I was pretty well informed, but I learned so much new information. I will feel so much more confident when I cannot find the specific yarn cited in a pattern, to pick a yarn that will work instead.
