In honor of March being National Crochet Month, Kraemer Yarns would like to spotlight the beautiful projects be worked with a hook and our yarns! Crochet stitches can create a very different fabric texture than you can with knit stitches and the projects range from cute and cuddly toys to cozy blankets and gorgeous garments.
The crochet section of the Kraemer Yarns free pattern collection has something for everyone and is beginner friendly. We have baby booties in Perfection DK and a Crochet Baby Blanket in Perfection, a classic baby gift to create in an easy-care yarn! Maybe this spring you could use a practical Go To Market bag in Tatamy Tweed DK, or a trendy Flower Infinity Scarf in Sterling Silk and Silver? We are in the final stages of editing two new crochet patterns, so please stay tuned!
Sharing your projects on Ravelry is a great way to inspire others. We absolutely love this Textured Shell Stitch Wrap that LaTomBoye crocheted in Sterling Silk and Silver. Then we spotted her dress! Also crocheted in Sterling Silk and Silver, the Silver Skimmer is a 1968-1969 McCall’s pattern. LaTomBoye’s project notes are quite extensive, and we think this is an amazing project! You’ll also want to take a look at our Pinterest Crochet board. We’ve curated the board to include tips, tricks, project ideas and more! Do you have a crochet tip or project to share? You can find us on Ravelry, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!
Welcome to the blog of Kraemer Yarns!
Kraemer Textiles has been custom spinning yarn for many types of industries for over 100 years, including apparel, carpet, home furnishings, industrial and craft. Our hand knitting line, Kraemer Yarns, began in 2005. Today we would like to share with you ways in which we can connect with you, the handcrafter who is using our yarn line. We would also like to put the spotlight on Perfection Yarn, a yarn that is….well, perfect!
Perfection is a Go-To Yarn!
Perfection is a blend of U.S. merino wool and acrylic. Before we bring any yarn to market, we rigorously test market it to knitters and we work with them until every aspect is just right! Perfection is available in DK, Worsted, Chunky, and Super Bulky weights in more than 65 colorways. You will find this yarn is wonderfully springy, works up smoothly and is durable. It is a perfect choice for your next project, whomever the recipient! Perfection is an easy-care yarn, it can be machine washed and dried. We hope you will ask for it at your local yarn shop. If you have trouble finding a local retailer, you can purchase online with free shipping!
Project and Pattern Inspiration for Perfection
At KraemerYarns.com you will find free patterns available to download for all of our yarns. We offer patterns that are just right for a beginner to build on their skill set and for the advanced knitter ready to tackle a complex cable.
The Riverpath Scarf is our featured Pattern of the Month. Two skeins of Perfection Worsted are all you need to knit this great unisex accessory designed by Eleanor Swogger. The Airy Openwork Tunic is a crochet tunic top, great for layering now over a swimsuit or come fall with leggings. Marybeth Temple designed the pattern, found in the June 2015 I Like Crochet! magazine. Summer is a great time for small projects like the Winter Lake Neckwarmer, by Kristen Stoltzfus in the Crochet! Fall 2015 special issue. Combine your favorite three colorways of Perfection for your own unique cowl.
