Red Heart’s Grande Yarns Give You Instant Gratification

If you’re like most knitters and crocheters I know, you want instant gratification, and Red Heart Grande fits the bill. Red Heart Grande is a wonderful, soft, Super Bulky yarn. It falls into category 6 (Super Bulky) and uses either a size 19 needle or a size “P” crochet hook.

Grande3What if I were to tell you you don’t need needles or hooks at all? You can use your hands and arms to work with this yarn. Recently I taught a class at a yarn convention how to knit using their arms. During the class we used 2 balls of yarn held together. At first people were skeptical. They weren’t sure what the finished product would look like, or they were worried it would be a difficult skill to master. However in our 2 hour class, we learned how to cast on, knit, and how to bind off. The ladies left the class with either a scarf or a cowl. One woman decided she was going to make a shrug with her yarn.

Red Heart Grande comes in 10 colors and Red Heart Grande Metallic comes in 6 colors. It’s an acrylic and wool blend, and feels really good!

Happy Stitching!
