  • Magazines and yarn weights?

    Just a thought. I would love it if crochet magazines would put the actual weight of the yarns for the patterns because some of the yarns are not easily purchased around here. I would love to be able to purchase something comparable in weight.

  • Suggestions on yarn type for beanies?

    Hello! So, I've made a few beanie hats in the past, but I haven't been happy with the yarns I've used. It seems that when I use standard yarns, the hats are too stiff even after being washed (I've tried different stitches and hook sizes too). I was wondering if anyone has had better luck...

    Hi, I have a pattern for a small purse that calls for using wool. Is there really a difference between the elasticity of wool and acrylic? Will the wool crochet tighter and not stretch like acrylic?
