- This answered my questions about what to do if the yarn called for in a pattern is not available. I especially profited from the discussion of yards vs grams in figuring out how much yarn to buy, also how the weight of the yarn can drastically affect the yardage. Paying attention to fiber content is also important if you want the same qualities of drape, etc. in the finished garment. – Peggy
I learned a lot from this short class.
It might have been better had I been able to join in the live session, but I couldn’t. I still benefited from it, though. I still don’t totally understand everything that was presented, but I have a start in the right direction. – Judy
I really liked this webinar. Patty Lyons is a good presentor, and I learned just what I was looking for: what yarn to choose for what use, how to pick a yarn different from the one the pattern recommends, and most importantly, how to judge the quantity of yarn needed for a pattern I’d design myself. I specially loved the tips about the comparison between yarns of yesteryear and today’s yarns.
I would have loved if the webinar could have had more pictures of Patty’s tools (like her blocking board) and finished products. Nevertheless, she illustrated her point of “always swatch and block” very well with pictures of different swatches in different designs. I won’t forget it.This webinar actually changed the way I knit for the better! – Myriam
