Yarn Preview/Review


Crystal in Gold

I have fallen for S. Charles Crystal. Maybe its the sequins or maybe its the cute tank top in the newest S. Charles Spring collection pattern book “Knitscape“. Either way sparkle is in and not only on the runway, but in yarn stores everywhere.


Crystal paired with a cotton yarn

This photo does not give this tank justice. After seeing this on the runway at Vogue Knitting Live it is much more flattering, stylish, and trendy in person.


Stars were all glittered up at the Grammys Sunday night as well. Check out some of these dresses for inspiration…

Jennifer Hudson in Versace

Katy Perry in Armani








Yarn Contents:

75% Polyester, 25% Cotton

Gauge- (varies) 8sts + 12 rows= 1″

25 grams – 144 yards (131m)


Crystal comes in 4 different colors: Gold w/ gold, White w/ gold, Silver w/ silver, and Black w/ silver.

The only downside… most stores have sold out of their initial stock, but its due to arrive within the next two weeks.

    For an incredible experience, try Artyarns yarns with sequins and beads. We do not make them in the same blend as above (polyester and cotton), but use the finest silk, cashmere, and silk/mohair blends.
    Our sequined yarns are:
    Beaded Mohair & Sequins
    Mohair Splash
    Beaded Silk & Sequins
    Beaded Ensemble & Sequins
    Beaded Pearl & Sequins
    Beaded Cashmere & Sequins
    Retail is $38+ for these lovely skeins, and they average at 100+ yards.
