Lion Brand Rewind Tape Yarn

When Marie told me that Lion Brand would be providing yarn for our Summer Quickies CAL I was super excited because they have a few products that I have been wanting to try that I haven’t been able to locate in the shops here in Canada.

I chose to use their Rewind Tape Yarn for my quick summer project. I decided to design an easy everyday bucket hat that you can make in just a few hours. I wanted this hat to be as hassle-free as possible, so it was designed to be made with a single skein and a 5 mm (H) crochet hook.

Overall, I loved working with the tape yarn. It is soft to the touch but allows for firm stitches with a smaller hook. I found it held my stitches perfectly and the thickness of the product was consistent from start to finish. There were a few ties within the skein that I had to cut and retie before crocheting with it, but otherwise it was super easy to work with. There were zero tangles in the yarn skein and the color was consistent throughout.

Notes:

  • Multiple of 1
  • I use a DMR (double magic ring) to begin my projects when they are worked in rounds and spirals. You may substitute a magic ring (magic circle), or a chain 3 and slip to form a ring, if you prefer.
  • Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every round and move it forward as you start each new round.
  • We do not slip stitch to join or chain additional stitches, unless otherwise indicated.
  • We do not finish off between the Main Hat and Hat Band sections.
  • The hat brim is worked in the FL (front loop) only until the final round of slip stitches, which are worked under both loops like a normal stitch.
