Alternative yarns for a different look
Sometimes, you can be unsure about a particular yarn or model. Do you already have the yarn, but don’t know which model to make, or vice versa? You can change the yarn without taking too many risks and substantially reduce the instruction modifications required. To help you do this, download our Yarn Equivalents chart. You will also find this yarn equivalents information for the indicated yarns in all of our magazines. Of course, we also recommend that you visit the KatiaShops in your town so they can advise you before starting a new project.
Lastly, always remember to make a 4×4″ (10×10 cm) tension square whether you change the yarn or not. Do this before starting the project to compare with the number of stitches and rows indicated in the pattern. Follow these tips, and above all, enjoy knitting or crocheting your own made to measure fashion for a long time to come!
