Description:
Correct yarn selection can make or break a project. We'll begin by learning how to understand the yarn requirements called for in patterns including selecting your size and calculating required Yardage. Then we'll set about deciphering yarn labels so that we can make the best yarn/pattern match! Finally we'll dig into the ins and outs of substituting a different yarn for that which is called for in the pattern taking into consideration fiber content, yarn weight, and more.

Homework: none

Prerequisites: none

Barbara Benson  is a knitwear designer from Florida. Her work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. She tends to explore slightly unorthodox elements in knitting; be it shaping, color combinations or unusual themes. She have written two books on knitting Mosaic & Lace Knits and Big Yarn, Beautiful Lace Knits.  Keeping things fun is important but I also make sure that the fun doesn’t get in the way of the knitter ending up with a finished object that they love.
