Going Sugar Free

These past few months, I have been hooked on crochet. Yes, pun intended. πŸ˜† Every time I finish a project, I am finding it harder to put down my hook. Unknowingly, I have more than ten browser tabs open every end of the day; all containing new prospects for a next crochet project. Sometimes, I surprise myself by not buying a new yarn!

Since I have probably spent so much time stalking yarns (yes, it is a thing.), Facebook introduced me to Yarns by Sugar Free! Thank you so much, Facebook algorithm.

Every few weeks, Sugar Free releases a limited number of multi-colored multi-strand yarns. The first yarn I bought from Sugar Free is this lovely cake, which they call the MYC Unicorn Fart V2.0 from the Cottonbery Diamond Line. I’ll be honest, I bought the yarn for two reasons:

  1. Yummy eye-catching colors
  2. The name. I see unicorn; I have this unexplainable urge to buy it.

Here is a closer look of the yarn.

This cotton yarn has seven colors and, the white threads have some sparkly element to it. I cannot help myself but, be enraptured by the most beautiful fart that I have ever seen.

And of course, I just had to make a Virus Shawl. For this project, I used a size 4.00mm crochet hook and one pull of the Sugar Free yarn.

And here is the Unicorn Fart Virus Shawl that I created! 😍 For me, the yarn was perfect for creating this light and soft shawl. It will definitely turn any cold dark night into a warm, colorful and sparkly night!

And surprise, surprise… I am waiting for the next delivery of another yarn from Yarns by Sugar Free!

What crochet project should I do next?
