Our Joy Creators are joining together for a Super Scarves blog hop! A Super Scarf is a regular scarf, but gigantic! The participating Joy Creators will be posting free patterns made with Red Heart on their websites on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in September, starting September 9. Follow along with the schedule below, and share the projects you make using the patterns with the #joycreators, #superscarf and #redheartyarns hashtags! Links will be added to this schedule as the posts go up.
Have you ever truly wanted to feel like a magician with your crochet hooks? Well now you can! Get ready to amaze your friends, and family when you play with variegated yarn. Red Heart Super Saver comes in a vast array of colors to try out this technique. Color pooling (or yarn pooling) has taken the internet by storm! There are videos, a group on Facebook completely dedicated to it, and it seems everyone is trying it. So jump on this bandwagon, get out your favorite multicolored yarn, and give it a try.
This velvety chenille yarn is ultra-comfy to wear and, since it is so thick, it is perfect for making quick blankets, pillows and fashion accessories. Sweet’s soft texture makes it a great option for arm knitting too!

Tapestry crochet is a niche of crochet that intimidates a lot of people because it involves a lot of different yarn color changes (resulting in many ends to weave in). However, once you get the hang of the color changes, you realize that this type of crochet, which is based entirely on basic single crochet stitches, is actually really simple. You work with several different colors across each row to create beautiful graphic designs, producing work that seems to be complex, but in the end it’s not that hard at all.
If you love the sparkle of metallic, you’ll love Gleam! This gorgeous yarn features either gold, silver, or copper metallic thread wrapped non-uniformly around the soft yarn base, giving this yarn a handspun look. Gleam is a perfect combination of style and comfort, great for fashion and accessories that are sure to get noticed.
I know I have said it before, but I will say it again…I love making things for other people. Babies are my absolute favorite subjects to make hand-made gifts for. They tend to appreciate my hard work, they do not judge me if I make a small mistake and the unconditional love when they look into my eyes is priceless.

I guess I could take the easy way out and make the same pattern over and over, but I like a challenge so I attempt something new with each gift. To assist you in making a variety of gifts for your special bundles of joy, I have put together a dozen of my favorite baby creations from Red Heart.

Extremely soft with just a little stretch and easy to use colors, it’s perfect for accessories, apparel and home décor.
