Yarn of the Month - April

Introducing April's Yarn of the Month....

Cascade Pinwheel!!!

First things first, here’s the stats...

Fiber: 100% acrylic

Weight: 3/4, light worsted

Gauge: 18-20 sts = 4” US 7-8 needles

15 sts = 4” H/8 hook

Yardage: 440 yards

Care: Machine wash. Tumble dry.

Cascade's Pinwheel can change your mind on acrylic yarns. I have met many knitters and crocheters in the past 6 months that have sworn off using acrylic. And I get it there are some acrylic yarns out there that are lack luster. But Pinwheel is NOT like those acrylics. Pinwheel is soft to the touch and still soft when worked up in knit or crochet. It's great for baby blankets! Really! The long color changes create a self-striping effect throughout the piece. So you can make a gorgeous colorful piece without a billion ends to tuck in!

Still not convinced? Take a look at our finished pieces and swatches in our store. I just finished a simple knit shawl and the stripes are really what make the piece.

So what does it mean to be Yarn of the Month?

Well the special deal is this... we have patterns for you that use the yarn so you don’t have to go hunting online. We have classes and projects just for the highlighted yarn. AND the Yarn of the Month is 20% off all month long! I think that’s pretty cool.
