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 Robyn 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.

This class is "Brilliant" it has lots of excellent tips to help you fined (yarn substitutions). I am more confident to walk in to a yarn shop or go online and buy or order exactly what I want, when it comes to yarn substitutions.
Thank you for a brilliant class!!

Very helpful in solving one of the most common issues in both knitting and crocheting. Answered lots of the questions I've always had, and gave reasons why some of my projects didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.

Robyn is an excellent instructor! The Lattice Shell stitch is beautiful and very well demonstrated. Just watching how she made the button holes along the edge alone was more than worth the price of this video, which I got at a crazy discount! Thank you so much Robyn for the sharing of your gift. What you do at Annie's s not in vain.

Robyn is an excellent teacher and provided expert instruction. I now feel confident I can go into a store that sells yarn and get the yarn suited to my project without having to hunt all over the internet for the recommended yarn that may be discontinued (happens all too often it seems)! Robyn gives clear and easy instructions as well as detailed demonstration in the video. The projects included are great and useful! I recommend this class to beginner and intermediate crocheters and suspect some expert level crocheters would benefit from this class too!
