Yesterday I got a lovely surprise in the mail. Red Heart sent me a skein of their new Super Saver Stripes yarn to review. They also sent me the new Super Saver Ombre. I am saving the Ombre for another post, (I must say it's gorgeous) the Stripes they sent is called Preppy Stripes and the colors are so rich and vibrant. I can't wait to begin a project with this bold and beautiful worsted weight yarn.
Stripes comes in 12 different color combinations, is a #4 worsted weight yarn and will be available June 1, 2017. Made in the USA, this luscious yarn comes in 5 oz (141 g) skeins. The yardage is approximately 236 (215 m). The recommended hook size for using Stripes is I/9/5.5 mm, 12 single crochet by 15 rows will give you a 4" by 4" swatch. This is approximate as everyone crochets a bit differently. I recommend creating your own gauge swatch before starting a new project.
If you are a knitter the recommended needle size is US 8/5 mm, 17 stitches by 23 rows should give you a 4" by 4" gauge swatch, again, this is approximate as we all knit differently. I crochet and knit and haven't decided yet if I will knit or crochet with this yummy yarn!!
