Vanna’s Choice Worsted Weight Yarn

Today I am working on a crochet project using Vanna’s Choice worsted weight by Lion Brand, a yarn that I have not tried before now.

I had been told it was a nice, quality acrylic yarn and after crocheting with it for a couple of hours, I am inclined to agree. I am working on a home decor design for my column in Crochet World magazine in a specific stitch pattern. Vanna’s choice is producing a very nice stitch definition; the stitches are crisp and clear, which is so important when working on multiple stitch patterns. Overall, the yarn is much softer than I thought it would be, making it nice to crochet with. The yarn, itself, is a bit fuzzier than most acrylic worsted weights that I have worked with before, but not enough for me to dislike ‘the look’.

The crochet fabric has a nice stretch to it, and yet is full bodied at the same time. As with most acrylic yarn on the market today, it is machine washable and dryable, making it a good choice for a good quality afghan or other home decor items. Vanna’s Choice comes in a wide variety of beautiful colors, making it even more appealing for your typical projects made with worsted weight acrylic yarn.
