I saw skeins of this yarn (the higher end variety) at my LYS last month. It’s very scrumptious, comes in divine (and more adult) colors, and is tempting – but, what to do with it??
There are less expensive varieties like Red Heart Pompadoodle and Hershnerrs’s Pompom Yarn.
The January/February 2010 issue of Crochet Today! Magazine has patterns for a hat and muffler using the RH version of this yarn. They picture the finished items on a child. They’re quite cute. The two-tone pink used in this hat and muffler is a nice selection.
When using these yarns, the crocheter is urged to never pull a pompom (fur ball??) through a stitch, to crochet only on the approximately size 10 thread between the pompoms. Sounds like a good plan but not sure I could pull it off. I fear this yarn will disappear even faster than those eyelash and feather yarns. A little bit goes a long way……
