Jelly Yarn is a fun yarn, geared towards kids, but equally fun for adults. The yarn is a single strand made of 100% vinyl and comes in fine (sport) and bulky (worsted) weights. Included with the yarn is a package of vinyl protectant that is used to coat the yarn and hook/needle in order to allow the yarn to slide more easily. You can also use lotion on the yarn and hook instead. It is not recommended that you use plastic or wood hooks/needles when working with this yarn.

When first crocheting with the yarn, it’s a bit awkward getting used to the feel of the vinyl and how to work with it but it soon comes more easily. I found that it was better to crochet a bit loosely in order to provide enough room for the hook on the next row or round. The yarn also tends to slip out of the hook or loop, so make sure you use a hook with a deep enough notch and when stopping, to pull the yarn through the loop enough that it won’t slip out.

The yarn is fun to use for belts, bracelets, small purses, etc. The website has several free patterns and they just published a book called “Jelly Yarn: 20 Cool Projects” – a review of which is in this issue. The yarn is available in 14 fun colors and in opaque, metallic, and glow-in-the-dark versions. The photo below shows the yarn in Blue Taffy and Lemon Lime Ice. Keep an eye out for a fun pattern using this yarn in a future issue.

Please note that the label on the Fine Jelly Yarn has the incorrect gauge count for crochet, i.e., 12 dc and 6 rows = 4″ with a K (6.5 mm) hook while the web site had the same number of stitches but with an I hook. The correct gauge is shown above and the web site has been corrected.
