I have been crocheting since august 2021 and have used a variety of different yarn brands and weights from dk, Aron, chunky and super chunky and James c brett, cygnet, BERNAT and many more! Just wondering what everyone’s favourite brands of yarn are to use when crocheting? I think mine are the cygnet chenille chunky and BERNAT velvet plus, if I had to choose!
I love this yarn is the best acrylic
That all depends on what I’m crocheting. Right now I’m using red heart super saver yarn for all the amigurumi I’m doing. I have a lot of Bernat blanket yarn that is always fun to work with. Kinda hooked on cotton. I have some DK weight cotton yarn, PaintBox brand. I really love that for thinner or wearable projects. Mostly I find a sale price and stock up on that.
Have you tried I love this cotton?? I think you would love it! They even have glitter cotton yarn you can find it at hobby lobby!
I do love it. I’ve never crocheted with it myself but my grandma in law has. Waiting for a really good end of your clearance sale. Dream on right?
Yes! But you can get it 30% off every other week just check the app/website to see if it is on sale
I have to wait for my stash to dwindle first. And that could take years. Hahaha
(better sale, I could do)
I love the bernat velvet for amigurumis! But it’s so hard to find in France I have to buy it online, it’s so expensive with the shipping cost and taxes…
I usually use Red Heart. I do have several different types of Bernat too. I’ve crocheted with several brands and weights and always seem to steer back to Red Heart.
That’s what my husband says
That’s the same with me, I always end up going back to the same yarn!
I am in the UK and it is quite easy to get a hold of over here thank fully!! It is annoying when there is a yarn you really want to use but can’t find anywhere!
I m currently crocheting a jumper using paintbox yarns, and I am really pleased with how it is turning out, the yarn is working great for it. A sale is normally a factor in what yarn I buy, who doesn’t love a sale!!
I love Lion Brand Chunky—I’ve made many hats with it because it works up so fast !
LoveCrafts operates in a lot countries, including France and they have 5 different kinds of Bernat Velvet. Shipping charges are decent too.
Here’s the link to the French website- Bernat Yarn | LoveCrafts
Thank you for the link! I don’t really know if it’s worth because even if delivery is free, they sell it at a very high price but maybe if it’s in promotion some day it can be a good deal
Why so expensive? You’re right there in Europe for crying out loud!
Yes I mean, there is nice yarn at good price, but for velvet yarn…
Oh! I’m sorry in the USA velvet yarn is around $11.99
