Swatching Experiments

Today I have been making swatches for my Playing with Triangles Shawl class this weekend at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  These are to show my students what a difference changing the size of hook can make to your fabric. I used Ella Rae Cozy Worsted for my swatches.

Swatch #1 I used a 4.5mm size hook. Swatch #2 I used a 5.5mm size hook. Swatch #3 I used a 6.5mm size hook.

I think I will make a fourth swatch, since I wasn’t completely happy with how the fabric came out in swatch #3. I’m actually going to go down half a millimeter in size to see if I like that fabric better.
