Yarn Substitution Made Easy: Matching the Right Yarn to Any Knitting Pattern
Yarn Substitution Made Easy: Matching the Right Yarn
An in-depth guide to choosing the right yarn for your project—including 10 patterns that explore how different yarns affect the outcome of your final product. 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, trusted knitwear designer and teacher Carol J. Sulcoski provides solutions to this common conundrum, offering a wealth of information. 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. Ten projects offer case studies of yarn substitution in action; each finished project shows suitable alternatives and reveals how yarn choice affects every aspect of the item.

Big Yarn, Beautiful Lace Knits: 20 Shawls, Hats, Ponchos, and More in Bulky Yarn
Big Yarn, Beautiful Lace Knits: 20 Shawls, Hats,
Lace gets a whole new look!Lace has traditionally been knit in finer weight yarns to create airy, delicate designs. But when knit in bulky yarns, lace becomes bold, graphic, and dramatic. Working with thicker yarns also makes the projects move along more quickly and the lace repeats shorter, so it's easy to learn new stitches and techniques. For those new to bulky yarns, Barbara Benson shows you how these yarns work best in lace designs and provides tips and tricks for reading and executing lace patterns. Then you are ready to knit any of the 20 patterns for beautiful lacy shawls, mitts, hats, cowls, blankets, and more. Gorgeous photography by Gale Zucker shows the pieces to their full, stunning effect. Get those big needles and chunky yarn ready to roll!
