Yarn Substitution Made Easy with Carol Sulcoski
Master the mysteries of yarn substitution! We'll start with gauge, then discuss the various weights of yarn (fingering to super bulky), weight/yardage/plies, and look at fiber and yarn characteristics that affect substitution (e.g. drape, elasticity, weight, halo). We will also consider color choice and buying quantities of the substitute yarn. We'll finish by walking through some real-life examples by selecting potential substitute yarns for real patterns. Note: Class focuses on how to substitute yarns the same weight/gauge as called for by the pattern and does not include rewriting patterns to use a yarn with a different gauge.
