I am asking for info on the best type of wool to crochet a baby shawl ...I am fairly new to crochet and have only done basic stitches at this time so i am hoping someone can give me some ideas on what sort of wool to use and also what size hook to use ...
cheers from Oz
Some babies are allergic to wool. I would stay with Red Heart Baby yarn which is found in every yarn section of department and yarn stores.
Thanks I will look for that
Use a fine yarn, Fingering or Sport weight. Crochet makes a fabric 3x as thick as the yarn, and you do not want the shawl to be so stiff that it can stand up on its own!
