Featured Yarn 41 | Feza 3N Super Bulky
|October 29, 2013||Filled under Yarn|
Have you ever knitted with yarn that was this big? I have not, but I would love to try this one someday. But I would try some different (NOT knit or crochet) projects with this yarn. I think I would play with project like this:
1. With worsted weight (#4 Medium), or probably thinner crochet a basic piece (it’s can be scarf, shawl or rag – you name it) in net pattern (something like [tr, ch 3] repeats, or probably [trtr, ch5] – I need to see this yarn first ;o))
2. Weave through every ch-3 sp lengthwise Feza 3N yarn, leaving 5-6” yarn tails on both ends, which is a king of fringe and NO weaving ends at least ;0)
And if work with contrasting base and Feza 3N, it may be really interesting look!

What would you crochet with this kind of yarn? I would love to hear all of your opinions!
I probably would crochet a scarf or a shawl.
Thank you for sharing, Judy!!
No, I would not, Alla. I feel it would not be good for my hands. I value them too much to risk using such big yarn. I do like the styles it creates, though.
Yes, Mary I agree with you – even is this yarn may be too soft, I would try something to do with WITHOUT needles or hook A project like I’ve described, or make a tapestry as Marie said.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Mary!
Although I might try a scarf or something like that…I think that with something this size I would more likely make a tapestry or blanket…pillows…In other words, things to adorn the house rather than a human!
We are definitely on the same page, Marie!! :) Thank you for sharing your opinion and ideas!!
