55: Yarn Detectives Part 1

55: Yarn Detectives Part 1

This week we're talking about identifying mystery yarn! (A quick note - we mentioned next week's episode, but it will actually be two weeks away!) KAL: Sock Hop will be at 4pm EST on January 1.

We're digging deep into your stash to help you identify yarn that might no longer have any identifying information. (Eek!) This week's question is about choosing patterns when knitting socks for larger feet.

WPI (wraps her inch) and Yarn Weight Charts

Here's a link to a WPI tool, in case you're having trouble visualizing it!

Tools for yardage

  • Mystery yarn (with WPI/weight identified)
  • Kitchen or postage scale (need to measure in grams)
  • Yarn Weight and Yards per Pound Chart
  • These are estimates/ranges because fiber content and yarn construction affects physical weight

Patterns mentioned in this week's episode:
