We've all been there… You fall in love with a pattern only to find the yarn the designer used has been discontinued or is just not to your liking. It's a story is as old as the art of crochet itself. Perhaps even the worlds first Love-Hate relationship! "I LOVE this garment, but the pattern calls for superwash wool. I'm allergic to wool so I can't make it." or "This shawl uses 2 skeins of hand-spun lace weight yarn made from the plucked eyelashes of albino Vicuna, dyed in a mixture of crushed sapphires... can I use sport weight cotton/rayon instead?"
Don't let the idea of substituting one yarn for another fill your heart with a looming sense of dread. There are simple methods for making those kind of decisions - and, lucky you, there's now a downloadable video that will give you all the information you need to fearlessly swap one yarn for another! <Insert Happy Dance Here>
