Crochet Yarn Talk – Red Heart Fashion Soft Yarn Review

I have been a long-time lover of Red Heart Soft Yarn and Fashion Soft is the lighter weight version of it. Soft and silky to the touch, this yarn is great to crochet with and your finished projects have beautiful movement and drape. The yarn has a soft sheen to it and the 18 colors available range from vibrant jewel-tones to glossy looking neutrals. Red Heart Fashion Soft Yarn is an excellent yarn to use for projects like hats, wraps, scarves and shawls. You can also make a very pretty and lightweight blanket using this yarn. Red Heart has free patterns available which were designed specifically for use with this yarn. You can check those out right here: Red Heart Fashion Soft Yarn Patterns
I have not seen this yarn locally at my regular shopping spots in Ontario, Canada but it is available directly from Red Heart online and at retailers in the United States (like Walmart). I have seen it available at Herrschners for Canadian residents, if you would prefer to purchase from our side of the border.
The Red Heart Fashion Soft Yarn is available in 18 pretty colors. From left to right in the top row are: Artichoke, Atlantis, Black, Bright Pink, Camel, Caribbean; from left to right in the middle row are: Chocolate, Cobalt, Cream, Flax, Grey Heather, Hot Pink and from left to right in the bottom row are: Kelly Green, Lavender, Navy, Nutmeg, White, Wine.
Later today I am releasing my newest free crochet pattern for the #SCARFOFTHEMONTHCLUB2017. My contribution for the June free patterns is the Camello Bandana Scarf, which is a super versatile scarf you can also wear as a wrap. With the option to continue the pattern repeats for as many times as you want, you can also crochet a full size lightweight shawl following my pattern. I chose to use Red Heart Fashion Soft Yarn for my project and the color I selected was Camel. This lovely neutral shade is perfect for an everyday accessory and the yarn gives the project beautiful drape and movement. If you prefer a more vibrant color you have quite a few jewel like color options available – I bet this would look glorious in Hot Pink or Wine! The free pattern will be available around 7 pm ET on June 18th at this link: Camello Bandana Scarf
