This free yarn giveaway is now closed. The winner was Meagan Mangrum. Congratulations! Stay tuned for future giveaways! If you want to be sure you don’t miss any, I suggest subscribing to my newsletter!
The winner will receive three skeins of Kraemer Perfection Chunky. Two skeins are the color #7133 Raggedy Andy and one of them is color #7126 Ragg Time. This yarn is a 5/chunky weight blend of 30% Domestic Merino and 70% Acrylic. By “domestic” they mean that the merino wool they used was produced in the USA. Each skein weighS 100 g and contains about 120 yds of yarn. The yarn is a three-ply with one dyed strand and two natural white strands.
The winner will also receive a Banana Moon Studio stitch marker and button! The winner can choose if they would like their stitch marker to have a lobster clasp or just a ring. The jar of crochet hooks is not part of the prize, sorry. It’s just there for decoration.

What can you make with this yarn?
I designed a super scarf in this yarn and a marvelous sweater. However, I don’t have enough of this yarn left to give you the right amount to make either of those. Though you could probably make a shorter version of the scarf with three skeins.
A Ravelry search turned up 39 patterns designed in this yarn, so that would be a good place to look for ideas! Or you can substitute it for another bulky weight yarn that is acrylic, wool, or a combination of both. Another possibility would be to use my Basically Beanie crochet pattern to make hats. This is a basic double crochet beanie that gives you instructions to make hats with any yarn, any hook, and any size hat!
