First lets answer the Question,
"Why Crochet With more
than One Strand of Yarn?"
There are several reasons.
1. If you use 2 or more strands of yarn
you get a nice thick texture.
2. You can mix yarn colors for a unique look.
3. You can mix yarn textures,
like a WW(4) and a Fun fur for a
great furry fabric that is sturdy,
and get a very fun look.
Okay, Lets See how simple this is to do.
When you crochet with 2 or more strands of yarn,
You hold the strands of yarn together,
just like you do with crocheting with 1 strand.
Here is a starting chain using 2 strands of yarn.
I used 2 colors so you can see how they work together.
I turned and stitched a few single crochets.
One think to remember, is that the strands can get twisted
as you pull them together.
So don't be in too big a hurry.
I turned and stitched a 2nd row of single crochets.
This is 2 Worsted Weight yarns (4) so I am using an I Hook.
If you use more strands you will want to go up to a larger hook.
See how simple this is.
There are many Crochet Patterns that
call for a Chunky yarn,
You can substitute 2 strands of
Worsted weight yarn,
and get a very unique looking project.
Another technique is to add a
thin thread of silver or gold,
along with your yarn, to add a little sparkle.
Have fun playing with your yarn and
see what new designs you can come up with.
