Yarn Substitutions for June 2018 CAL

The Puffy Lace Shawl by Natalia Johnson is our amazing CAL for June 2018. It’s in the issue releasing on June 1, 2018, and works up very fast!

Natalia, our designer, has used Rd Heart Unforgettable for her sample and the colors are quite lovely, don’t you think? But since we know that not everyone can find this exact yarn, we wanted to give you lots of suggestions. One of the great features of this call is that you can make it in any weight yarn from fingering to worsted, weights #1-4. So many choices! The Happily Hooked team loves self-striping yarns, but you can always use solid colors for this one or make your own stripes!

Red Heart Unforgettable

This is a light worsted, single ply, acrylic (but looks handspun) yarn. When substituting yarn weights, choose a hook recommended for the yarn and size up or down to get a light, airy fabric.

Here are some substitutes:

RH It’s a Wrap (Romance Colorway shown)

RH Super Saver Ombre (Spearmint Colorway shown)

Knit Picks CotLin (Raindrop Colorway shown)

Knit Picks Shine Worsted

Lion Brand Cupcake Yarn (New)

Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle (Draco Colorway shown)

Lion Brand Ombré Life (Sunrise Colorway shown)

Premier Sweet Roll
