Working with Fleece Hugs
When Red Heart came out with this new yarn I put Katelyn, my assistant, on the task of working with the yarn and putting together a review. She worked up both a knit and crochet pattern with the yarn and has her opinions below.
Working with Red Heart Fleece Hugs is easier in knit, in my opinion. Because there is texture to the yarn it makes it a little harder to see your stitches when crocheting with the yarn. With that said, if you use a larger hook and feel your way through the pattern you will have no trouble at all crocheting with this yarn.
I can make that statement with confidence because I made both a knit and crochet blanket with the yarn. Using the FREE patterns provided by Red Heart, and listed below, I made a baby shower gift and a car blanket for my kids. Although the yarn has some texture which might make it a little harder to work with, the feel of this yarn will have you coming back.
One touch of this yarn and you won’t want to put it down. It is super soft and makes the perfect gift for babies, or really anyone. Each cake of yarn has a generous amount of yarn that you can make a baby blanket, in either knit or crochet, with just one cake.
Being wound in a cake allows you to see the different colors that are available for each cake. Color change for this yarn is abrupt and typically has two completely different colors next to each other. These color changes allow you to achieve a color block look without having to change yarn colors yourself.
Overall I feel that this is a great yarn to pick up. I love that you can make a project with just one cake of yarn and it makes a great gift idea for baby or other kids. It would make the perfect yarn for accessories to keep you warm through out the cold months. For more warmth you could hold it with another yarn as well to give it a more dense fabric.
