Red Heart Twilight Yarn Review:

2015-12-30-08-32.jpg

 

I had the pleasure of receiving a bundle from Red Heart over the summer (RedHeart Bundle 2015 ), included in this bundle of goodies was a skein of Romantic Twilight Yarn.

First, I would like to share with you how much I love the colors! The mixture of deep pink, tan, purple with mantic thread running through out the yarn is so very colorful The yarn itself is a mesh construction giving it a tube like appearance and also making it one of your thicker yarns.

The 3.5 oz skeins are made of 61% Acrylic, 25% Nylon, 9% Polyester, 5% Metallic. The care instructions emphasize a machine wash cold and gentle cycle,and to lay flat to air dry. Do not bleach and do not iron, thereby making this an easy yarn to care for.

The yarn was very comfortable to work with, as it glided through my fingers with ease and I had no trouble with snags or tangles. With the many colors and the mantic shine I wanted to stay with a simple patten, so I chose a cowl. The simple pattern is worked in double crochet’s.

I really enjoyed working with this yarn and I am already planning several projects to do in the future. This yarn would be great for crocheting hats or scarves, but I am leaning toward a nice warm shawl.

If you do not like Romantic as much as I do, it also comes in Armour, Electric, Jaded, Lapis, Mercury, Pixie and Rose Garden.

Thank you so much to Red Heart folks for sending me this exceptional bundle, I really enjoyed the experience !!

Until Next Time, Keep Those Hooks Flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
