Description
Learn why "skein for skein," yarn is not always the same, in this book of 16 knitting projects. Four well-known knitwear designers explain how to successfully substitute same-weight yarns, using examples from a range of yarn producers, and show how style, texture, and fiber content affect results.

"Providing two options and one swatch for each of 16 patterns—four per fiber weight—this book not only shows good substitutions but, almost as important, bad ones, too.... It's also fun to see how drastically color play changes a look: [Cheryl] Potter's Rustic Roses pullover, for example, goes from cheery to theatrical with shifts in palette and material."—Yarn Market News
