When beginning a project, every knitter confronts the question: 'What yarn should I use?' The answer can be complicated. Sometimes the recommended brand is unavailable or too expensive, or you'd rather use extra yarn from your stash. But even similar products might yield different results, altering structure, size, and texture.
Now, knitwear designer and hand-dyer Carol J. Sulcoski provides solutions to this common problem. She explains what characteristics to consider when substituting yarn, and gives guidance on calculating the quantity of yarn you'll need and how to evaluate your swatches.
The ten included projects show yarn substitution in action - each finished project shows suitable alternatives and reveals how yarn choice affects every aspect of the item.
