Marla’s Kelly Earrings Crochet Project
Made by: Marla Wetherell
Pattern: Kelly Earrings Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
Yarn: Embroidery thread
This pattern features Be So Fine Yarn. This yarn is discontinued. Here are some alternative #1 fingering weight yarns to consider for yarn substitution:
Jimmy Beans Wools:
Scheepjes Whirl Yarn: #1 fingering weight 60% cotton / 40% acrylic, self striping, ombre yarn; 1094 yds per 225gm ball that changes color only once per ball; it comes in 51 gradient color ways, suggested needle size is US 4 (3.25mm). It is labeled a #1 fingering weight yarn. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine or Be So Toasty Yarn. One ball would be plenty to make any of my knit or crochet Be So Fine Yarn shawl patterns. Each gradient cake retails for $29.99.
Comfy Fingering: #1 fingering weight 75% Pima Cotton / 25% acrylic; 250 yds per 50gm skein; Suggested needle size US 1 – 3. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Fine and Be So Toasty Yarn. It comes in 19 colors and retails for $3.99 per skein.
Red Heart It’s A Wrap: #1 fingering weight 50% cotton / 50% acrylic, self striping yarn; 1100 yds per 7oz cake; suggested needle size US US2. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would bel comparable to Be So Fine and Be So Toasty Yarns. It comes in 5 colors and retails for $10.99 per cake.
