All about yarn substitution

Has the yarn been discontinued for your favourite pattern? If so don't despair, help is at hand!

The December 2006 issue of Simply Knitting magazine is in the shops now and it contains part one of Debbie's article "All about...substituting yarns".

This month covers "Like for Like" substitutions - replacing one yarn with another similar one - with easy to follow methods to calculate yardage, estimate yarn amounts and top tips for tension!

Part two next month covers "All Change" - a total change of fibre - and "Spicing It Up" - adding a small amount of different yarn to alter a pattern or finish a garment.

Simply Knitting magazine is published by Future Publishing and is available at all good newsagents. If you would like to subscribe to this magazine please call 0870 837 4722 or go to www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk
