Can you crochet with yarn?
After hundreds of hours of teaching crochet, I’ve learned a thing or two about what yarn makes learning crochet a little easier. When looking for a yarn to learn crochet with, look for these features: Worsted (category 4) or bulky (category 5). These yarns make it much easier to handle the yarn and see your stitches.
How does crochet thread differ from embroidery and sewing threads?
The thread that is created for sewing is very thin and simply doesn’t work as well as thread intentionally created for crochet. While embroidery thread has the right thickness, the strips are very short, which is frustrating when trying to crochet because you will have to constantly join ends before working.
Is 100% cotton yarn stretchy?
Cotton doesn’t have any natural elasticity, so keep that in mind when planning your project. Having a more form fitting gatment could be difficult to achieve, but they’re great for more relaxed, casual looks.
