It’s easy to spot Jelly Yarn, it’s unlike any crochet yarn you have ever seen. It is a pliable vinyl that is round. Typically you will use a Size J (6.0mm) Hook for the regular size yarn and the there are also smaller yarns available depending on what you are doing. The name of the yarn is so appropriate as Kathleen Greco, founder of Jelly Yarn, has created a line up of colors that are bold, bright and delicious to your eyes. Jelly Yarn can also be found under the name of Yummy Yarns as well.
Nick Greco, author and husband to Kathleen, has created this fabulous color filled book of “20 Cool Designs” targeting girl projects. Crochet requires manual control of your hands. This yarn is so nice and thick that it is easy to use. For a child to begin to learn to crochet, this yarn is a great starter idea and this book and yarn can make it fun.
Get this too… to make your yarn and hook slip better together, they are suggesting rubbing the materials with hand lotion for lubrication. Having a child start with this fun type of yarn and the bold colours can prepare them for a lifetime of Crochet and even knitting using this yarn and then eventually move to other yarns, hook sizes and of course much more.
This book is even fun for adults that want to make things in child size using Jelly Yarn. This is a great book to have a craft session with children or a rainy day activity.
