Yarn of the Month - YarnArt Jeans Plus


It's that time again! We are sharing with you one of our (many) favourite yarns! (AND this month, you can win a bundle of this awesome yarn - so be sure to read to the end to find out how!)

This May we are all about the YarnArt Jeans Plus - this is the aran weight version of the very popular Jeans cotton/acrylic mix yarn from YarnArt. Perfect for making summery versions of pretty much any pattern that uses aran weight yarn, including tops, summer hats and bags, and it's ideal for amigurumi, too!

What's not to love!!


Here's the finer details for this yarn:




Why We Love This Yarn

The spin is soft with a light texture that brings that tell-tale denim effect to your garments which we love, and comes in a magnificent range of colours!

The cotton mix can be used for a wide range of projects from beautiful garments to homeware, amigurumi or toys. The additional acrylic fibre content keeps it lighter, and makes it super easy to care for and wash multiple times (which is a winner in our eyes!)


As always we want to share with you some awesome patterns that we think would work really well this yarn. We have again, as in recent months, specifically included some Ukrainian designers in the mix to show our support in this small way - we hope you love them!



A Mix of Fun and Practical Patterns

Whether you'd like a fun project to get started on, or are looking for get summer ready with hats and bags - this selection of patterns has a little bit of everything :)



Bee Amigurumi - Crochet 365 Knit Too

This cute little bee is sure to put a smile on anyone's face! We think a family of bees would make a lovely summer garden garland, or perhaps a fun toy for a little one!


Spring Gnome - Anna Boychenko

Who wouldn't want a spring gnome? This picture doesn't do the gnome justice (he has a delightful striped top hidden underneath that beard!) And if you want to build a collection, you'll find plenty more where he came from in this Ravelry collection!


Sunny Sunflower - Anna Boychenko

This another fun project to brighten your day! This would make a lovely gift for anyone who's not so great at keeping plants alive! Or for anyone who wants a bit of summer all year round

Mosaic Bucket Bag - Rebecca Langford

This gorgeous bag has a beautiful mosaic look created using a few different yarns combined (check out the link for all the details). 


Sunny Bucket Hat - We are Knitters

This lightweight hat has a vintage look about it, and would look fabulous in any colour (and in case you didn't know, there are a LOT of colours to choose from in the YarnArt Jeans Plus range!
