You probably also know that I frequently shop at Joann Fabric and Craft, since it is the craft store closest to me. It’s truly one of my fave all purpose go-to yarns. I consider this yarn to be a good option for keeping yourself in yarn without breaking the bank.
Your measurements do not need to exactly align with mine, but I recommend staying close so that you do not run out of yarn. I’m so excited to have this space to share free content with you all now. For designers, this yarn is great for consistency with every color.

If you’re looking for smaller crochet projects, the Coffee Been Cup Cozy is a quick one that use the same worsted weight Big Twist value yarn. Here are some of our exclusively designed free crochet patterns using Big Twist’s Big Twist Natural Blend yarn. I’m not wealthy and this yarn was such a savior for my budget. If you decided on a yarn eater, like the waffle stitch or the alpine stitch, I’d pick up 2 skeins of the same dye lot just in case.
It used to be dryer safe about 2 years ago, but for some reason they changed it. I’m hoping that Big Twist makes it machine dry-able again because it was so much better before. Big Twist Value doesn’t have the scratchiness that Super Saver is known for and is much easier on the hands. It really is splitting hairs in the softness department between BTV and ILTY, but this is my honest opinion.
Be sure to get a large eye yarn needle when working with such chunky yarn too. Another Big Twist yarn I work with is their cotton line. This summer I stocked up on a variety of worsted weight cotton in mostly neutral colors. I’m Krista, and I’ve been creating modern crochet patterns since 2010.
I dislike Super Saver, but will buy it over this, at least I can toss it in the dryer and it will soften up. If you’re anything like me you shop sales and stock up when you can. However, yarn at a great price doesn’t always mean a great quality and sometimes you need something affordable when they aren’t running sales.
It gets long fuzziest if you put it in the dryer, I did a test swatch. I bought this yarn because of a pandemic created yarn shortage and halfway through a blanket, I hate it. Certainly it feels nice enough, but if it splits it’s likely going to break.
