Red Heart Soft Essentials

Red Heart Soft Essentials eBookOver the weekend I was at my local Michael’s store to help introduce the brand new exclusive Red Heart yarn at their store. This new yarn is Red Heart Soft Essentials. Red Heart Soft Essentials has everything that you already love about Red Heart soft but is now a bulky (5) weight. I can’t wait for you to see the new patterns that have been designed with this yarn. *This post may contain affiliate links*

Red Heart Soft Essentials Michael’s Event:

At the event I showed you a bunch of samples using Red Heart Soft Essentials. All of the patterns I showed you, and more, can be found in their new ebook. There are a lot of great patterns in the ebook from accessories to kids items and even a blanket. The bulky yarn makes these projects work up really quickly.

    I am curious as to how many balls of RH Soft Essentials it takes for the charcoal shawl?
