What To Do With Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn
A steady and one of my favourite yarns is Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn. It’s like crocheting with a cloud. There are two things you need to know about this yarn.
Number 1… If you are new to crochet and or struggle with locating stitches, you want to stick with open work projects like Granny Squares with this yarn. It’s difficult to see the stitches and you need to use your finger tips to feel for the stitches. For open work like Granny Squares, you don’t need to worry about it and can blaze along just nicely.
Number 2 – If you are experienced with crochet, you shouldn’t have too much of a problem. You will use your finger tips to feel the open stitches that you can physically cannot see. This applies to projects where there really isn’t any gaps to give you key open stitches. It’s doable but requires experience.
Generally, I have crocheted several blankets and ideas with this yarn without any difficulties. I enjoy the thickness. My one friend just loves this yarn beyond believe for her grown up boy. He loves snuggling under it while watching TV. She’s even made a full double size blanket in a massive granny square using this yarn. It’s super quick as it’s bulky and super soft.
Overall, I enjoy this yarn. It’s bulky look makes for relatively quick projects.

Comments on “What To Do With Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn”
How do you make a crocheted double crochet blanket with bernat pipsqueak yarn.
I personally use half double crochet when using the Pipsqueak, I find it’s the easiest to do, and I don’t really have to look or concentrate. Double crochet would be done the same way you would do it with any other yarn, you just have to go more by feel than by sight where its a fluffy yarn.
I love the pictures that you’ve included from the Bernat Pattern book for babies Bernat 530209. Unfortunately the book is out of print – any idea how to obtain a copy of the book. I’ve checked ebaby and a number of online book pattern sights. Thanks for you great website.
I’m working on a C2C baby blanket right now with Funny Bunny Pipsqueak. My label says machine wash, but lay flat to dry – not machine dry.
