Kira Dulaney: October 31 Successful Yarn Substitution
10 am - 12 noon PT
This is a virtual class on Zoom
It can be nerve-wracking to switch the yarn on a project, but sometimes necessary. Learning how to pick a successful substitute means you’ll never have to abandon a pattern written for a discontinued yarn, make a sweater too warm for your climate, choose from a line of colors you don’t like, or feel required to buy a yarn that's not in your budget.
We’ll talk about all of the considerations, with a special focus on how fiber content and yarn construction affect the finished project. Students will receive a handout and the slides shown during class, and have many opportunities to ask questions during the lecture-style workshop.
Materials Needed: This is a lecture style class so you don't need to have any tools and you are welcome to knit or crochet while watching. You may want to print out the handout that will be emailed to you two days in advance and/or have note-taking supplies at hand.
