Novelty Yarn

Its always more fun knitting with novelty yarn and the main reason I took up knitting in the first place. You can't buy something like that in the stores so it is truly unique and makes a special gift for friends and family.

I made several more scarves using the spring vines pattern to giveaway. I really like the way this pattern showcases these pretty yarns.

This pattern uses about 200gm of yarn that costs around $20. Novelty yarns are seldom natural and usually come in chenille, polyester, nylon or lurex that is soft and machine washable.

This interesting version is knitted from 2 skeins of yarn that are spun using various techniques to create multiple effects on 1 continuous line.
