Each project has a beginning. Sometimes inspiration starts with a new pattern, but our favorite knits always begin with a surprise “I have GOT to have that!” skein. Today’s episode includes our favorite ways to pick patterns when you’re starting from your stash.
First, Erica and Hannah discuss all the information on yarn labels! Each label has everything you need to know about a yarn if you know how to parse the mysterious lingo. (We’ve included a label here so you can follow along as we go through each section.)
Next, Stacey and Lee share some hot tips and special considerations when you’re searching for the perfect project for a specific yarn. Whether you have a single mystery skein or a sweater quantity of yarn, we’ve got you covered.
