Gauge. Does It Really Matter? (And Other Tips for Project Success)Karyn Johnston

Perfect for beginning and advanced knitters alike, this comprehensive, hands-on class will encompass all topics to help demystify gauge, including what gauge means, a complete survey of different yarn gauges, how to read ball bands and do a gauge swatch, and an inquiry into how gauge and yarn choice relates to your project. My goal in this class is to help you not only feel more confident and be more successful choosing your yarn, pairing it with a project, and selecting appropriate needles, but also offer tips and tricks to ensure you create the finished object you imagined.


This class is appropriate for all knitters with a desire to knit more successful projects.
