Caron Colorama O'Go Yarn 2021

[disclaimer] I received the yarn for this pattern from Yarnspirations.[/disclaimer]

Yarnspirations sent me a Caron Colorama O’Go Yarn to try and it really was Tangle-Free! You can pull the yarn from either end and it is so easy to work with. My favorite part was that I didn’t have to stop to untangle or unwind, I could just crochet and crochet and crochet.

I made 4 different projects with just 1 skein and I will be releasing 2 of the patterns today and the other 2 patterns this Monday. Find my Jordan Warm Winter Headband Pattern here.
