Hot Glue
So this question might be in the wrong forum, BUT I use a acrylic worsted weight yarn and I was wondering if I hot glue a pendant or ornament of some sort on a crocheted hat, or knitted scarf, will the yarn melt, shred or disintegrate or something like that?
Thanks for the Convenience

I sure wouldn't want to be the one to tell you it's okay and then have it melt or ruin the hat. I suggest you try hot gluing something to a swatch to find out.

I would just tack it on with some thread instead of hot gluing it.

Interesting thought....If you try it on a swatch, be sure to let us know how it works (or doesn't)

Remember that there are low temperature hot glues and guns out there.
