How to Crochet With Two Strands of Yarn Held Together

How to crochet with two strands of yarn held together, video tutorial

Let’s learn to crochet with two strands of yarn held together. Why? Some patterns call for this, or sometimes you may want to use this technique even if the pattern doesn’t call for it. It can be nice looking, but it can also provide you with a yarn that is bulkier than either of the two yarns by themselves.

For instance, I was recently working on a scarf that called for a bulky yarn. I really wanted to use some blue handspun yarn I had, but it was a sport or DK weight, a far cry from bulky! I decided to hold it together with a nice coordinating worsted weight yarn I had in order to get the thickness of yarn needed for the pattern. My pattern didn’t call for this technique, but I used it anyway to “thicken” my yarn for the project.

I currently have one design that uses this technique to add sparkle to a scarf. Spring Frost Scarf, which is a free pattern available from Kreinik Thread Co. See it here!

It is very easy to crochet with two strands of yarn held together! Watch my video tutorial to see how it’s done.
