Some Handy Knitting Tips – Substituting a different yarn
Have you ever really liked a pattern but want to use another type of yarn because you want a certain colour or wool content?
With a couple helpful pointers you can tweak a little bit to get the finished product you want.
First, ensure the yarn you select is the same tension as your pattern.
1. See how many yards/metres there are on a ball of yarn used in the pattern. Then see how many yards/metres there are on the yarn that you want to use.
2. See how many balls are required for your size on the pattern.
3. Multiply the number of balls by the yards/metres on the yarn used in the pattern.
4. Divide by the number of yards/metres on the yarn that you wish to use.
The answer will be the amount of balls you need in the new chosen yarn.
Important! Even though the ball band gives the same tension as your pattern, it is always best to check your own tension first.
You might need to go down or up a needle size.
