Strata is a jersey knit tube featuring fine fibers knitted into a tube around a soft core. Similar to a traditional T-shirt yarn but the tube structure means the yarn won’t fray along the edges, giving it great stitch definition. Extremely soft with just a little stretch and easy to use colors, it’s perfect for accessories, apparel and home décor.

I’m so excited to be partnering with four talented blogger friends and Red Heart Yarn to sponsor this year’s CAL!
Those of you who participated in last year’s event know it was lots of fun. You learned some new techniques, tried some new yarns, there were fabulous prizes courtesy of Red Heart Yarn and best of all you made some new friends. This year should be even better, so come on and join us for the fun!! If you want to see last year’s projects, you can find them here.
Welcome to My First with Marly Bird! Each month Marly will teach you a new crocheting or knitting project. These projects are designed to make you comfortable as you transition between learning the stitches and making a project. Every design has a written pattern and a step-by-step video tutorial to follow along.
Red Heart is now 80 years old! In celebration, we’re giving away prizes every single day for 80 days!
Welcome to the September Doily of the Month! Each month in 2016 we will share a new doily pattern for you to make in Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. We challenged the top doily designers to create innovate designs that coordinate with the feeling of each month. Plus, every month we will select five winners to receive an Aunt Lydia’s prize pack.
For September, we have the Japanese Dahlia Doily. It’s crocheted in Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3, so it’s quicker to make than you might expect. It works well as a decoration on a table, or framed and hung on the wall. Continue reading “September Doily of the Month”
Commemorating its 80th anniversary this year, Red Heart yarns debuts a fresh new logo and packaging to inspire knitters, crocheters and makers. The change marks the company’s milestone year and Red Heart’s next chapter in our history.
Last fall and winter we fell in love with cowls and the new stylish way they kept our necks warm and added a spark of color and texture to our outfits. This year continues with a deeper love affair we are having with the crochet Herringbone stitch pattern by Katy Petersen.
Duplicate stitch is the easiest way to add color to any knitting project made in Stockinette stitch. You can use almost any color work chart to add Duplicate stitch designs to hats, sweaters and more.
We are head over heels in love with Scrubby yarn and so excited that we have been adding new pattern inspiration to redheart.com every month. It’s not often that a yarn is so innovative and offers such practical help for daily cleaning and washing. We’ve been having fun using new colors of Scrubby and falling in love with the new Scrubby Sparkle version of this yarn. This shiny, festive Scrubby sister yarn not only washes your dishes, it is perfect for holiday and party decorations.
