The Yarn That’s Perfect For Squares
I love using all types of yarn for square projects. I tend to use Lion Brand yarns such as Vanna’s Choice and any of the Thick & Quick lines. They are easily my go-to’s when working up a square (or any type of) pattern.
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice
Vanna’s Choice is a 100% acrylic yarn that is easy to find and is fairly inexpensive. Learn more about Vanna’s Choice Yarn and see all the color options.
Lion Brand Thick & Quick Varieties
Wool Ease Thick & Quick and Thick & Quick (without wool!) are great choices for squares that you want to work up quickly. This super bulky yarn makes for a fast project, which in my opinion is always a good choice when crocheting.
Keep in mind, these yarns are ones that I love and aren’t necessarily for everyone. Be sure to look around to see if you can find a new favorite yarn too!
