I received a fantastic surprise a few weeks ago 🙂
Inside my surprise package I found 2 scrumptious balls of yarn, a tote bag and a handy Digital Row Counter (Susan Bates) from Red Heart!
The Digital Row Counter is fantastic!
It is adjustable and can be worn on practically any finger so you can easily click the button at the end of a row, or when counting specific stitches! The battery inside is replaceable too!
I also received a lovely ball of Red Heart Boutique Infinity Yarn – which I will tell you more about next Tuesday June 23rd! and yes there is a free crochet pattern involved 😉
Today I am going to share the first project I worked up using the Red Heart Boutique Twilight Yarn.
Fiber Content: 61% Acrylic, 25% Nylon, 9% Polyester, 5% Metallic
Skein Weight: 3.5 oz(100g)
Yardage: Approx. 59 yd (54 m)
Recommended Crochet Hook: 10mm (N-15) hook
Recommended Knitting Needle: 10mm (15 US) needles
The colour I received was Romantic (9948).
I really enjoyed working with the Boutique Twilight Yarn. Red Heart Twilight is a super bulky weight, chainette style yarn with a metallic thread running through it. I found it soft and easy to work with. I did not have any trouble with the thread snapping while I was crocheting and the chainette style retained it’s shape – it didn’t pile or shed as I worked with it.
I designed this quick and simple pattern for you to try using this pretty yarn. For this design I used a larger hook than is suggested with the yarn because I wanted a more relaxed stitch.
Twilight is available in 8-different colorways. You can view them all here: Boutique Twilight Yarn Colorways (scroll to the bottom after you click through)
- Rose Garden (*so pretty!)
Free Crochet Pattern
