My crochet students love Quattro
The most popular yarn with my crochet students is Quattro from Lang Yarns. My students like this yarn because it is a mercerised cotton which means that it has a lovely sheen and it comes in many beautiful colours. It has a tight twist so it doesn’t split much; this helps beginners to see the individual stitches and to insert their hook in the right place. And that means they make quicker progress when learning.
Quattro comes in 50 g skeins of 120 m. Lang Yarns describe Quattro as a double knit weight. However I think it is better described as a light double knit or a heavy 4-ply. It crochets and knits beautifully. I’ve nearly finished making a crochet blanket; because I want the blanket to drape and I crochet quite tightly I’m using a 4.5 mm hook.
I’m using Light grey, Duck egg and Teal: I love how they look together. I’m planning a second blanket using Pale lavender, Lavender and Violet; my friends all know that I love purples! And, if you came to Nottingham Yarn Expo or Winter Woollies last year, you’ll have seen the flower garland that I crocheted using this yarn.
I’m sure that you will like this yarn as much as my students. You’ll find 34 different colours of Quattro in the Being Knitterly web shop! To celebrate having this yarn I’m offering subscribers a discount on all purchases of Quattro. Check your inboxes for details. Additionally, if your delivery address is in the UK, you can select free postage on any order over £30.00.
Have fun choosing your colours!
