The big stuff

I loves a bit of mahooooosive yarn.


It has to be a favourite of mine.
It's so exciting- seeing that huge skein, rolled up in a cone or ball. So many possibilities ...




I've made quite a few things now, with the big stuff:


And I've got a few projects in mind for the book, too.

If you fancy giving it a go, then there are plenty of commercially produced yarns available. And you can always make your own t-shirt yarn - there's lots of tutorials online to guide you - try this one for size.

My stash (and there's more)

It goes without saying that you'll need a big hook-anything from 10-20mm (US 15/N/P - S) depending on the pattern and then you're good to go. Hold it in exactly the same way as you would a smaller hook and yarn- it takes a little getting used to, but you'll soon adapt.

The great thing about this yarn is that it works up really quickly.
In no time at all you can have a bag or basket or slippers! 

Enjoy your mahosssive  yarn adventures,
Sarah xx

  2. I keep saving old t-shirts so that I can make some more of this. I've tried it once and I got it to work eventually but cutting it out into long lengths fried my brain at first! Maybe I should just save up for some of the ready made stuff. Looking forward to seeing your book.

  5. Just bought myself a 15mm hook and downloaded your slipper tutorial - I think there may be a few people receiving slippers as Xmas gifts this year! :) Can't wait for your book too - I love your style of crochet, it's so refreshing.
