Resizing Patterns or Threads

Have you ever wanted to do a project and you don't have the right size of thread or want to use something other than what your pattern suggests?  You might feel like you have to guess on how to make the adjustments and may end up doing a lot of work only to find out that your lace doesn't turn out quite the way you planned.

We’d like to thank Ulla for sharing an excellent article on Resizing Patterns or Threads that tells you exactly how to make the adjustments.

Post comment to let us know how your pattern adjustment turns out!
