Buying Your First Ball of Yarn

Last week I was roaming around my local chain craft store when I overheard two ladies begging a clerk to help them figure out what and how much yarn to buy for a pattern they had brought along.  Unfortunately he didn’t know, but fortunately, I will butt into ANY conversation.  A few minutes later we were doing some quick calculations to determine what needles to buy and how many skeins to throw in the cart. This isn’t the first time that’s happened, and I think it’s only fair to take some time this year to share my yarn, hook, and pattern info with you.  This week we investigate the best yarn to buy for a variety of projects.  This graphic is perfect for beginners who are ready to buy their very first ball of yarn but are feeling so very overwhelmed.  Click the image below to view or download a PDF that you can zoom in on and study before your trip to the yarn store.  Of course, if you have any questions, just drop search for @hijennybrown on your favorite social media platform and drop me a line.

  1. Great graphic! I’m teaching a beginning crochet course in April as part of a university-affiliated lifelong-learning institute. Would it be possible for me to distribute your graphic (with proper attribution) to my students beforehand, to maximize the chances that they’ll attend the course properly equipped?

    Thank you!


    1. Thanks! That sounds like a great class, Q! I’ll send you an email and we’ll work out all the details.

    1. Thanks, Adri! It’s kind of nice sometimes to have a few leftover…you never know when you might need to whip up a hat or gloves (which is what I’m doing tonight instead of sleeping – ha ha!)
