#13 Choosing the Right Yarn for your Project

Yarn Can Make or Break Your Project

Someone asked me recently how I choose yarn for my projects and if I pick the project first and find the right yarn or if I pick the yarn first and figure out the project later. For me, the yarn usually decides the project and to be honest, I rarely ever choose the project before the yarn (unless I’m following a pattern of course). This way of designing may be a bit backwards from my fellow designers but it’s how my creativity works.

The yarn always decides the project.

No matter how your creative juices flow, this session will help you determine what important yarn qualities to consider when choosing a yarn. There are four things I always consider:

  • Texture
  • Color
  • Weight
  • Fiber

We’ll talk about each of these four qualities and how I allow them to play the main role in the yarn making decision. There’s a lot of good stuff here!
