How to Use Your Light Weight Yarn

How to Use Your Light Weight Yarn

When I started crocheting, years back, I used mainly medium weight yarn and chunky yarn. The patterns were easy, I enjoyed how fast they worked up, and I generally stuck to similar projects. When I was gifted a bunch of light weight yarn, I had no idea what to use it for! A few times, I would hold a couple of strands together and pretend that I was using a higher weight yarn, just to use up the light weights! If you are or were like me, you need some light weight yarn inspiration! Check out these amazing patterns below, and see what you’ve been missing!
