Is your clothing seasonal? In other words, is this a summer jacket or a heavy winter item like a scarf, blanket, or glove? This will tell you if you need a light or heavy weight yarn. Another factor to consider is whether the yarn draws moisture or absorbs like silk like wool. Although acrylic is warm enough to be worn in winter, it does not become very warm when it does not inhale or absorb moisture. Clothing needs other considerations, such as those time-consuming laundry problems. Even though wool and cotton retain their good shape, they shrink and the wool can feel a solid piece of fabric. Cotton has the tendency to stretch over time. Polyester Yarn may be your best choice. Most other yarns cost more, especially in the dry department.
Even if you think it is an easy decision - color - seems overwhelming choice. Remember, multicolor multi-colored yarns do not show your difficulty or size stitches at all. If you want to make a coat, then a solid, lighter color is the best. Fancy yarns with lots of texture make it hard to show off your fancy stitches, not to mention their challenging work. If the thickness of the yarn is inconsistent, it will cause the fancy stitch to disappear. If there is an error, it will be hard to pull out. This time you can consider the application of polyester yarn.
Many of us are impatient and want to see the end result of a project. If you are making blankets or rugs, consider using bulky or stocky yarns. Yes, it allows you to quickly make your clothes, you can use a more open needle and a larger needle or hook compared to a simple stockinette or single crochet. The thickness of the yarn and the openness of the stitches can help you see your amazing progress.
