Hate Getting Yarn Burn?By Rachel Choi – 19 Comments
Heart burn, rug burn…let’s talk about yarn burn! You know when you hold your yarn and it drapes over your finger when you crochet, sometimes you may get yarn burn. I’ve never got yarn burn before, but Ana (a Crochet Spot reader) told me if I or anyone else ever got yarn burn, you should make a finger cozy.
Here is what you do to make a yarn burn preventing finger cozy:
- Make a foundation chain that is long enough to wrap around your finger.
- Slip stitch into the first chain made, forming a loop.
- Single crochet around, until the cozy is the length you desire. You can either crochet in a spiral fashion or chain 1 before each round of single crochet.
According to Anna you should use about 1 skein of cross stitching floss. This way its not so big and bulky and your finger doesn’t feel like its on a diet.
Do you suffer from yarn burn??
