The Yarns That are Perfect for Afghans
I love using all types of yarn for blankets/afghans, but probably my few favorites all happen to be Lion Brand Yarn!
I recommend trying out Vanna’s Choice, Hometown, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, and my new love Feels like Butta! Each pattern listed will have more detail about what exact yarn to use so be on the look out for that information.
