Recently, I turned an old entertainment center into my yarn shelf. After painting it, I removed all of my yarn from the cubbie shelves I had them in, and replaced those shelves with my new yarn shelf… a yarn center? Hehe. My yarn is mostly organized by brand, with a miscellaneous shelf of each weight so as I was going through my worsted weight yarn shelf, I came across 3 skeins of Stylecraft Special Aran yarn that I had ordered from LoveCrafts back in October of 2019 to try out. Even though I ordered it with the intention of making a hat and cowl, it just never happened, and the yarn has just been sitting on my shelf.
I set these 3 skeins aside, and decided to put together this fun collection of patterns that used Stylecraft Special Aran, and run a giveaway (at the bottom of this post).
If you’re interested in purchasing this yarn, you can order it from the LoveCrafts site. I enjoy shopping here because they have a huge variety of yarns, fast shipping (and free if you spend the magic number), and if you have any questions, customer service responds fairly quickly. You can also purchase crochet (and knit) patterns directly from their site as well from your favorite indie designers, like me! Check out my EyeLoveKnots LoveCrafts crochet pattern shop.
