Five Ways with Furry Yarns

19 Nov 2014
Five Ways with Furry Yarns

Who doesn’t love a good furry yarn? From eyelash yarn to the fuzzy feel of faux fur, we just can’t get enough of the fluff here at Let’s Knit. We’ve been looking at our favourite ways to use furry yarn, so sit back and get inspired!

The Fur Tree

Still got those dreaded Christmas decs to make? Try putting a knitted twist on your tree this year with this pattern from Frugal Haus. Use traditional green or use snow white instead, add ribbons, bows, mini ornaments – make it your own personalised piece to use year after year!

Chunky Waistcoat

When it comes to garments, sometimes it’s better just to add an attractive border in furry wool as opposed to using the yarn for the whole piece. Have a go at making our Chunky Waistcoat with its fluffy collar – a simple and easy way of adding elegance to a knitted piece. Best of all, you can download the pattern for free here at LK!

Fuzzy Penguin

June Gilbank – better known in the woollen world as PlanetJune – has created a great array of furry friends, including this fuzzy crochet penguin! From woodland critters to cuddly lambs, you’re sure to find a project just for you. You can download this little guy and more over on her website!

Stylecraft Cropped Sweater

Little girls everywhere are sure to love this cuddly cropped sweater. Knitted in Stylecraft’s classic Eskimo Kisses, it will definitely become a firm favourite of the recipient. Find the pattern in our December issue of Let’s Knit, on sale November 21st – or if you can’t wait that long, head on over to the Stylecraft website to find a local yarn shop near you!

Fluffy Sheep

What knitter can resist a snuggly sheep? Now you can make your own woolly friend with a little help from Lion Brand’s free pattern! Their sheep uses glittery eyelash yarn, giving your new pal a great festive twist. Why not make yourself a whole flock?
