Lion Brand Color Made Easy Yarn
If you have been looking for Color Made Easy (CME) patterns then look no further. This bulky five yarn is a fantastic yarn to use in designs because it can be washed and dried while still maintaining it’s original color and shape. I know that being able to wash and dry blankets, hats and any crochet piece is a must-have for me as a mother of three children.
I used CME when I designed the V-stitch blanket that I blog about last year for my son’s room. It will be in the list below too for easy reference. 🙂 Working with this yarn was easy since it’s considered a bulky yarn which means it crochets up fast. And let’s not forget how soft it is on the hands!
I also wanted to mention that I liked to use this yarn as a substitute for Woolspun by LionBrand which is no longer in production. I have quite a few patterns that use Woolspun yarn so this is a great alternative. You can check those patterns out here.
There are 21 different colors to choose from in this line and all are quite vibrant and beautiful which makes it perfect for any crochet pattern you can imagine. Plus, each skein has about 250 yards which means you can crochet any size blanket quite inexpensively. YAY!
