Hello all,

I got this yarn out of the clearance bin at Wal-mart but I have no idea what to do with it. It is a bulky Acrylic/Nylon blend. Very, very fuzzy poof of a yarn. It has a creepy looking scarf pattern on it but I will not be making that. Anyway, I wanted some suggestions on things to make with this yarn. (remember I'm still a newbie) What type of stiches work/look best with it. Any draw backs to it? How to make it look a little smoother.....bascially anything ya got.

Well, this link is from the manufacturer and has a few pattern ideas. I'd think that for something like this, you'd want to do a scarf, or possibly use it as trim in another project. I love yarns like this, but never know what to do with them.

You'll want something with a plain stitch pattern, garter or stockinette with a border.

Fuzzy yarns hide stitch definition so it's best to stick with plain stitches as Sue said. What you make also has to do with how much you have.

That would just about be enough for a scarf, or a hat and wristwarmers. I think...

I think that fuzzy yarn would work well for making a teddy bear or a toy rabbit.
