Have you ever found the perfect pattern, but you're not sure how to choose the perfect yarn?

Yarn substitution is one of the skills that knitter's need to develop in order to enjoy the full range of yarn and knitting designs that are out there. Proper yarn selection can make or break your knitting project.

In our exciting web seminar, Secrets of Yarn Substitution with Patty Lyons, you'll learn:

How to understand gauge.

• How to properly estimate the amount of yarn you'll need based on a pattern.

• How to use your swatch and a sketch to figure out your required yardage when you don't have a pattern.

• How to best make yarn choices based on stitch pattern and yarn color.

• How to make great yarn choices by understanding the properties of fiber, such as warmth, absorbency, elasticity, memory, and drape.

Presenter Patty Lyons has spent years teaching thousands of students to think about their yarn and needles as their ingredients and how to choose them with the care of a top chef.

Patty teaches nationally at shows like STITCHES, VK Live, and the Knit and Crochet Show, as well as at guilds around the country. She'll share with you her secrets to choosing the perfect yarn, and how to make sure you never run out once you do!

A day without knitting is a day wasted! Nothing like a few rows of stranded fairisle work to push work-worries aside...

The feel of a good yarn is enough inspiration, only bettered by a beautiful color.
