You voted on the Scarf to come out first in Project #2 of the Christmas Present CAL (Crochet-Along) sponsored by Premier Yarns! I really think you’ll love the textured thickness of the stitching use for the scarf. When you combine a great yarn like the Candy Shop and perfect stitches……there’s no way you can go wrong!
I can’t wait to start seeing all the projects come to life using this unique yarn. Premier wrote a blog post introducing the Candy Shop yarn. “Candy Shop is a first cousin to our best-selling Sweet Roll™. Like Sweet Roll, it is a medium weight, 100% acrylic. Both Candy Shop and Sweet Roll come in a 140g cake-style ball. Both have 3 colors in each ball. ” If you want to read the full blog post, click HERE. You’ll see a picture of 3 balls in the same colorway but that have a different look to each one!
