Yarn Substitution Made Easy
SKU: ST-30280
At the start of any knitting project, you will face a basic question: 'What kind of yarn should I use?' The answer is far from simple. When the brand recommended in the pattern is unavailable or too expensive or you just want to use some extra yarn from your stash, simply switching to a similar product might not give you the results you want. Factors such as fibre composition and material can affect the structure and ease of a garment, the final size of your finished item or the texture of your stitches. This book, from trusted knitwear designer and teacher Carol Sulcolski, offers solutions to this common conundrum. Knitters will find a wealth of information about the characteristics to consider when substituting yarn, as well as guidance on calculating the quantity of yarn you'll need and ways to carefully evaluate your swatches. They'll also find case studies of yarn substitution in action with eight projects. Each finished project will show suitable alternative yarns and offer lessons on how yarn choice impacts an aspect of the finished item.
