HOW DO I USE THIS??? Let me help you in this explanation for using thin-thick yarns. Also good for pompom yarn, thick slubby yarn, anything that goes from extremely thin to having thick blobs of yarn.
I love art yarns. I’m attracted to them for some reason. I just love how interesting they look. Then I try to stitch with them and I’m just flustered. I don’t like making them super loose. I’ve heard that when using a yarn of varied thickness you should get a hook that accommodates the largest thickness of the yarn. But these super thin to super thick yarns just don’t work up in a pleasing way to me if I do that.
So, I made a headband with a slubby art yarn (See it here on Instagram) that came in a bundle from my CGOA convention trip. I worked the single crochet headband in the back loop only and kept all the slubs on the back side of the piece. Start with a chain that’ll reach around your head (or the user’s head) to start, join it, and start working sc into the chains.
