New at Northern Threads, is the Mini Mochi Yarn from Crystal Palace Yarns.
We love this self-striping Mini Mochi yarn for socks, scarves, hats or mitts. You should give this soft, single-ply, fingering weight yarn a try. The ball is approximately 195 yards/50g. 80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon. Mini Mochi is available in many exciting color combinations and complementary solids, as well! Customers can buy this yarn on our webstore.
Personally, I had fun with Mini Mochi and the Cattus scarf pattern by Beth Graham. It was a super easy Tunisian crochet project that I completed in just a few evenings. It’s very easy, because it only uses the basic Tunisian simple stitch, increase and decrease. I used the Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook Set, as it is my favorite for Tunisian crochet. The stitches just glide on the hook so smoothly, they are a dream to use. So if you’ve been thinking of giving Tunisian crochet a try, definitely consider using Mini Mochi and the Cattus scarf pattern.
I am a big fan of the modern Tunisian crochet! It’s fabulous! You must give it a try!
