Knitting Swatch Boards

By: Susan Kerin from skerinknittingandcrochet.com
Updated March 15, 2021

"Knitting and Crochet By-Products: Swatch Boards and How to Make Them Swatching is key to good knitting results. The more projects you do, the more swatches you prepare. If you are experimenting with many stitch patterns multitudes of swatches will result. When the swatch container begins to overflow, it may be time to create a swatch board. These are fun to do. The process provides a lot of reflection time; project memories return as swatches are recognized. Completed boards make for great inspiration. To boot, they make for great artwork worthy of prominent display. "

NotesSupplies: For each swatch board you will need 2 sheets of white 20 x 30 x 3/8” foam core board, lots of straight pins, thimble, and your bin of swatches.
Optional: background fabric material and duct tape for sealing it onto the boards. The project lends itself to great creativity to create your knitting memories.
