Bulk Up Your Stash

If your stash yarns are lightweight (fingering / DK / worsted weight), you can transform them into bulky yarns easily!

  • Doubling: Hold two strands of yarn together (try two different yarns)
  • Tripling: Hold three strands of yarn together
  • iCord your yarns before knitting / crocheting (see video below)
  • Chain your yarns before knitting / crocheting (see video below)

Are you a Designer or a Maker?

DESIGNERS can pick up a skein of funky handspun and see the project it will create.

MAKERS prefer to let Designers go through the trial and error process of making an item with handspun yarn, and follow the template or pattern they've designed to save themselves the frustration (and the panic) of trial and error. 

Both are CREATIVES. They just choose to apply their creativity through different processes. Designers are energized by creating something new, fresh, and different - even if they have to go through the process backwards. Makers are energized by creating something they are confident will turn out pretty because it's already been done and they can follow the method and just create without the stress of designing.

THISyarn's goal is to show MAKERS the possibilities of what to make - and give DESIGNERS a place to share and publish their ideas.
