Do you struggle with knowing how to substitute yarns in a crochet pattern when you can't find the exact same yarn listed? Yarn substitution can be confusing, but with the expert guidance of instructor Robyn Chachula, you will soon understand how to easily choose and substitute yarns.

Join Robin as she unlocks the mystery of yarn substitution. Learn how to choose the best yarn for any projectŚgarments, home decor items, bags and more. Discover how to decipher yarn labels to find the fiber content, yardage and weight, and discover which of these attributes is the most important. You'll see which yarns drape well, which are light and cool, and which are durable. And, you'll learn which versatile yarn has the same qualities as either wool or cotton!

In this video class you'll learn how to:
  • Recognize the 3 families of yarn: plant, animal and acrylic.
  • Know when to substitute between yarn families, and when not to.
  • Determine which yarns drape the best for garments.
  • Tell which yarns are more durable and long-lasting.
  • Select a yarn that showcases the stitch pattern.
  • Choose yarns to avoid wool allergies.
  • Work a beautiful lattice stitch pattern.
  • Make 3 exclusive crochet patterns: Light & Lacy Purse, Lattice Stitch Pillow and Raspberry Cowl.
This class includes easy-to-read instructions and a symbol diagram for three exclusive projects made with different yarns: Light & Lacy Purse, Lattice Stitch Pillow and Raspberry Cowl. The basic stitch pattern is the same on all three projects, allowing you to clearly see and understand how different yarns suit different types of projects.

WoW! Class was through, Robyn doesn't talk down to you but she covers each point to help you understand a complex subject. Her project choices are varied which helps you to see the way the yarn functions in a pattern and in the finished product. She also gives you a worksheet to guide you in your yarn selection. I've found that these days I know more about the yarn than helpful sales people in stores and that lead to poor yarn choices and a less than satisfactory outcome. I now have a tool to help me make better selections. I learned what I needed! I'll be looking for her videos again!

This video have a lot of information to be processed. I viewed it once and need to view it again to get all the information down. I inherited a yarn stash and don't know how to use these yarns correctly without the finished item looking completely odd.
