Design News

Yarn blending is the technique of stranding several yarns together to create a knit or crochet fabric. It takes all the beautiful qualities of its component yarns and blends them into something that is greater than the sum of its parts. HOW TO DO IT: 1. Take a few yarns and hold them together. 2. Judge the combined thickness and select an appropriate needle or hook. 3. Knit or crochet all yarns at once. Yarn blending is so simple, yet it can yield infinite varieties and unexpected results. You can never predict what a yarn blend will look like until it’s worked up. Therefore, an integral part of this process is creating swatches. After a few rows, you will get an idea of how the fabric will look and can evaluate the combination. Then you can adjust your work, adding in new yarns that you like. Since blends tend to be bulky and require a large hook or needle, a swatch can be made in no time. TIPS 1. Use a large needle or hook. Generally, combining together several yarns yields

a bulky weight yarn, so using a large needle or hook really helps keep the fabric pliable. 2. Think tonally. Choose yarn colors that are different but share the same amount of lightness or darkness, so they will blend together when viewed. 3. Select yarns that share a primary color, as in the yellow of the cowl (top left). 4. Try a variegated yarn. Mixing a single variegated yarn into your blend can produce moments of color drama. Make sure your other yarn colors are in the same palette as the darker hues of the variegated yarn as in the scarf example on the right. 5. Keep one of your yarns consistent throughout so that there is a visual continuity between changes. 6. Strand with a metallic yarn like Vanna’s Glamour™ to give a punch that really makes the other yarns stand out, as in our hat example (lower left). 7. Start with a simple pattern and let the fun begin. Use our Basic Hat (L0410), Scarf (L0411), or Cowl (L0412) patterns and experiment with your own yarn blends.

From “Yarn Bombing The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti” by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, Arsenal Pulp Press.

Yarn bombing, knit grafitti—or as it’s called in Europe, yarnstorming— has been taking hold all over the world. From fiber artists who craft covers for a water tower or bus to small community groups who cover lampposts and parking meters, embellishing the world with yarn is a celebration of beauty and a sign of hope and humor. This kind of work is joyous, whimsical, and opens up what knitting and crocheting can be. What can you do, individually or in a group, to decorate some part of your world with yarn? Yarn is the new paint of our times.
