However, it is available in store and online at Joann’s. The first thing I consider when looking for a yarn is how consistent each skein is with one another.

The more popular Value line of yarn is not as durable or soft as others in its same category – like Red Heart Super Saver – but is a good enough yarn for most projects. Cozy slippers are a cold-weather must-have. Lucky for you, you can start and finish these soft crochet slippers in an evening.

These 26 designs are the perfect way to stay warm this winter with easy to wear layers, and some fun holiday projects too. Bernat Home Dec yarn is meant for home decor projects but it is surprisingly one of my favorite types of yarn to use for summer bralettes because it has great structure! I also have had no issues machine washing them one cold and low heat machine drying. It’s also great for things like coffee & bottle cozies and other simple summer projects!

To secure your handle to the basket, pull the tail through the last ch from the ch 3. Locate the first sc stitch from the last round. From the inside to outside of the basket, pull the tail through the stitch. Then relocate the 3rd ch from the ch 3 and pull the tail back through the ch. When working your stitches, make sure that you are scooting your stitches all the way onto your hook. This ensures that your loops are reaching their proper size, in comparison to the hook you are using.

The price range and quality of Big Twist Value yarn would put it on par with RedHeart Super Saver , and Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn brand . The hat and scarf I can believe easily only take 1 skein, although with the scarf I think checkerboard pattern crochet it would depend on your gauge , desired length, and what stitch you used. Using a yarn needle, weave tale in and out of top stitches and cinch tight. Double knot yarn around a solid stitch in the center of your cinch and tie off, weave in ends if you prefer. This photo shows nicely how the colors fade into one another.

One super-easy way to start and finish your crochet projects faster is to use super bulky yarn. Okay I know I’m pretty much giving this yarn line a pretty high score but it’s really how I feel! In terms of budget friendly, choice variation, and uniformity of it, this yarn can’t be beat when compared to other big box store yarns. This yarn feels higher quality than what you are paying for.
