I got a chance to play with Red Heart Boutique Swerve! It’s being sold as a scarf yarn, but I saw something fun for summer – the Swerve Crochet Clutch!
- US – Q, 15.00 mm hook
- US – G, 4.00 mm hook
- Large plastic yarn needle
- 1 skein Red Heart Swerve, 11 yards (Fizzy colorway shown)
- 10 yards worsted weight yarn (Red Heart Stitch Nation Alpaca Love in Fern shown)
- For lining: material, zipper, thread, sewing needle (red felt shown)
- Button (optional)
Red Heart’s label pattern for Swerve calls for working the yarn with
your fingers instead of a hook, and it’s easy to see why. With a yarn
like this, you can’t see the stitches! What you’ll need to do is to go
by feel, to find each stitch. Where you’d normally go under both loops,
with this yarn you’ll want to go under just one. It doesn’t matter which
one – again, you can’t see the actual stitches! Be sure to pull up each
loop nice and big, never force the hook.
Just go with your gut and it’ll be fabulous. If you don’t have a Q
hook, you could in fact make this clutch with your fingers! While it’s
just single crochet stitches, the challenge of this yarn makes this an
intermediate to advanced pattern. It’s worth it though, because the end
result is so fun. And it works up SUPER fast!
