This tutorial will teach you how to use 1 skein of yarn and create a bulky yarn with it while you crochet. No cutting or knotting required.
Most crocheters, including myself, love worsted weighted yarn. And we love the yarn color selection that weight comes in. But sometimes you need that yarn to be thicker and it’s just not available. Do you know what I mean? So frustrating. But there is a solution to it.
And you will not need to cut your yarn or create knots. Simply use that one skein of lightweight yarn and create a bulky yarn from it WHILE you crochet.
Yes, you heard that right. While you crochet. Not before or after.
And don’t worry. It seems to look a lot more complicated than it really is. I love revealing crochet secret tips and tricks. How about you?
Shall we get started?
Create Bulky Yarn from 1 Skein of Yarn – Written Tutorial
First, I want to give you a heads up. This is EASIER than it might appear. Second, I have a video below if this still seems confusing to take one ball of yarn that has one strand and turn it into 3 strands while you crochet.
So here is how you do it:
Make an S with your yarn and push it together. You will have a loop on 2 sides and the beginning of the yarn and the yarn ball opposite from each other. Combine start of the yarn with one loop – creating 3 strands – now start crocheting with your hook.
Once you reach the second loop, you will pull the yarn from the yarn ball through to create another loop. And keep crocheting.
This seems very hard to understand. I get it. The picture shows how you expand the yarn further and further into 3 strands – therefore bulky yarn – while you crochet.
But I promise you, the video will be a lifesaver for you. check it out below 🙂
