I feel so honored to be chosen by Michael’s to tell you about their new yarn line! Because they are such a great company I didn’t have to think twice about saying YES! And I was even more thrilled when the yarn came for me to play with. They also know I have both knit and crochet fans so I get to show you projects in both crafts and everyone wins! Here is my first FREE pattern as part of a 5 month campaign to bring you Loops & Threads Colorwheel awesomeness.

Here is what I LOVE about this yarn:

  • It’s Soft! For real! I think sometimes I hear acrylic and I think scratchy but Colorwheel will not disappoint!
  • 54 Color Choices!! I mean WOW! They can be combined to do gradient work or little pops of color here and there.
  • #4 worsted weight yarn
  • 90 yards/1.75 oz/50 grams
  • Machine wash/tumble dry low
  • 100% anti-pilling
  • $1.99/skein which is an amazing price point! No more spending a fortune because you want lots of colors for fun projects!
