Swatch-buckling Adventures - Class Registration
YARRRRRR! So many projects end up in time-out or with sad endings due to problems with gauge… whether you crochet or knit, gauge makes a difference for making things fit and for making sure you have enough yarn to complete the project!
In this class, we’ll explore the wild world of swatching before embarking on a project. How do you create a swatch that will be accurate? To wash or not to wash? When can you skip the swatch? If you’ve ever wanted the answers to these questions - and especially if you have other related questions! - join us for this class.
