How to Substitute Yarn in a Cocoknits Sweater

Choosing a yarn in a color and texture you love is what makes a garment unique to you. Cocoknits wholeheartedly encourages yarn substitutions. Check out our Modify Your Gauge video for a simple way to plan your Cocoknits Method sweater with a different yarn.

The yarn you choose can totally transform the look and feel of a garment. Thinner yarns worked at an open gauge give a flowy fabric, just make sure they are strong enough to survive snagging! While thicker yarns will create denser, cozier garments.
