How to Substitute Yarn

Description
Beginner | 6 min
Taught by Debbie Stoller
You don’t always have to use the yarn suggested in patterns — but if you do stray from the recommended yarn, you’ll want to keep a few guidelines in mind. Debbie Stoller shares sage advice for substituting yarn, such as using a yarn in a similar gauge and weight and sticking to the same fiber family. Also important, you’ll learn how to calculate yardage requirements for your new yarn so you won’t run out in the middle of the project (or buy far more than you actually need).
