MAKING A SWATCH

Tension or gauge samples – also known as swatches – are essential if you want to get your projects perfect. And, it’s time to confess… we know we should swatch, but how many of us actually do?


In this one-hour lesson, our knitting expert will explain why it’s important to swatch, and how it affects your work. You will also learn how to measure your samples and what to do if you need to remedy any differences. 


You will need

  • A 10 x 10cm knitted swatch in any weight or yarn, knitted and blocked
  • A notebook and pencil
