The wonderful folks over at Red Heart sent me some yarn in the mail to review! As soon as it came to my door my head flooded with ideas! My go to yarn is always their worsted weight brands, but this time I was determined to branch out and try new things! This gorgeous Red Heart Boutique Twilight in Jaded stuck out to me right away!
I loved it. It reminded me of Mermaids and the Sea Punk scene so I had to dabble with it! I came up with this mermaid themed crown! The yarn worked up great. Fast and easy since it is a bulky weight yarn. I used the color Jaded. You can find it along with other varying colors of this yarn HERE. It is very soft to the touch and I am living for the extra zazzy flecks of the sparkle strand in the yarn! I can’t get over how soft this yarn is! It didn’t fray either which surprised me since it seems to be in sort of a tube like shape. What a pleasant surprise. Now you know I had to share how I made this cool colored crown, so I turned it into a free pattern below.
