JOURNEY KAL - YARN SUBSTITUTES FOR JOURNEY

Yarn Substitutions for JOURNEY // www.veryshannon.com
Have you been wondering what yarns you could use to make the patterns from JOURNEY?

We thought it would be fun to show you some yarn substitutes that we like for our patterns from JOURNEY for the knit along! We loooove the choices we have listed in the book but we know not everyone has access to those yarns and it's also fun to see the projects knit up in different yarns too! So I've compiled a list of some of the yarns that I would think of using (and some that others have knit the projects with)! I don't know about you but I love looking at people's FO's in different yarns! It's so fun!

I hope you enjoy the choices below and please feel free to suggest a yarn that you love too! I'd love to hear which one you'd love to use for my patterns!

If you're taking part in the JOURNEY KAL please dont' forget to tag your posts with #journeykal on FB, twitter and Instagram (and so on) so we can keep up with all your awesome pics! I've been having so much fun reading through them at night! And pop by Jane's blog tomorrow to see her yarn substitutions.

I'm in the process of revamping my Knit Along home page (can't wait to show you all!). It's still in the works but in the meantime you can find our new JOURNEY KAL homepage! You can always find all the info for the JOURNEY KAL there - sign ups, posts, info and more! You can check it out HERE.

What yarns did you choose for your JOURNEY project? Did you make a substitute that you love? Leave me a comment - I'd love to know your choices!

  1. I loved my Antrose test is Tosh Chunky! A strong contender in my opinion to add to the possibilities! :) avasmom2007 :)

  2. My Swift in Cascade 220 sport is nice, but I am really really loving my second one, knitting it in Diamond Luxury Superwash DK. It is so springy and squishy! Also started my Antrorse in Malabrigo Worsted and it is knitting up great :D my gauge is perfect on 10's!

  3. This is why I love you-I love the yarn in antrorse but five years ago wouldn't have been able to afford it. It's awesome that you're putting the Suva out there and even included knit picks!
