Before you make a sweater, do you swatch? For me it depends. If the project is a totally new project and the yarn that I am going to use is totally new to me, I will certainly make a swatch. I will normally not make a big swatch, just about 20 sts and 20 rows are enough. Then I will wash the swatch to see how it reacts after washing.

However, if I have made the pattern before or have done something similar, or I am familiar with the yarn, then I won't make a swatch and just start the project!
