What To Do With Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn
If you love big balls, you may just love the Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn. This yarn seems to go on forever and is a favourite of my own personal choice yarns too. I don’t see many people talking about this yarn and I think it’s a shame really. I think it’s a great yarn that may be overlooked by crocheters when seeing it on the shelf.
The advantage of the yarn is the mix of fibers used. It has cotton and nylon. The cotton allows the projects to breathe. With cotton, you can keep your body temperature regulated better. Cooler in summer, warmer in the winter. It’s remarkable.
This is a perfect choice to get new crocheters interested in crochet. With the tubular design, you don’t have worries of plies splitting. The yarn glides through your fingers and hook like buttah! It’s fabulous.
Most of the free patterns, actually all but one has a free tutorial to follow. I love this yarn so much, I have done most of the free patterns in tutorial format on Yarnspirations.com.
Try something new and give this a whirl on your hook. We’ve brought this to two crochet cruises so far and people are so surprised on how great it is. It’s something they have overlooked and realized what they were missing.

Comments on “What To Do With Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn”
I am making a purse with this yarn and it has a fringe added to the bottom. Will fringe cut from this yarn fray on the ends when washed?
I’m really not sure. Yarnspirations would know that answer. I’ve not washed this yarn, so I don’t know first hand. You can contact them through this link to inquire. https://www.yarnspirations.com/contactus
Would this yarn for dish towels?
No, this has acrylic inside the tube of cotton yarn. It would really struggle to dry.
Would this yarn work for a pullover sweater or would it be too stretchy?
It would be lovely and work okay.
Mikey, please help!!! Im making a purse/bag out of the Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn (first time using this yarn). I started out with a 6.0 hook, too “holey”, so i kept going down a hook size. The problem is, im down to a 3.75 hook and I can still see the holes. I know i could just do a liner inside but i would still be able to see the liner. I tried crocheting looser but that didn’t help either. What should i do?
Does the yarn feel soft like cotton or slippery like nylon?
I would say in between those descriptions.
Would this yarn work well for making a purse?
Can this yarn be used for floor pauf?
Yes it can be.
