Yarn Substitution and Gauge

Yarn Substitution and Gauge

From March 02, 2019 10:00 am until March 02, 2019 1:00 pm Save to calendar


This class will help knitters master the mysteries of yarn substitution and calculating gauge as it is often the most intimidating aspect of knitting, but it’s also the most important for fitted garments. We will examine how different types of yarn and needles behave, how to take gauge and knit a gauge swatch, and the importance of reading the ball band. Don’t be a gauge victim again! Finally make knits that fit! Then cover the various weights of yarn (fingering to super bulky), discuss the relationship of weight to yardage and plies, and look at fiber and yarn characteristics that affect substitution (e.g., drape, elasticity, etc). Bring your projects and questions. $45 + gst
