Tip of the week: Yarn substitution

Tip of the week

1)swatches

I know that not everyone is a fan of this piece of #knittingwisdom but it is rather a hill I am willing to die on.

You may have been lucky and had things come out the right size but that is a heck of a risk to take. Knitting designers, pattern writers and tech editors put a lot of time into working out all the numbers and sizing for a pattern based on a particular tension. Taking a little time to swatch makes it more likely that your project will come out well and not make that work in vain.

And it's just a little bit more knitting - and you like knitting, don't you?

If getting the right tension is your bug bear, to read about my Knitting Therapy option and we'll see if a one-to-one session would help you.
