Sprightly Yarns – My Newest Yarn Obsession


July 28, 2017 by Robin @ Imperial Crochet

I sprang for the kit and fell in love!

After seeing how cute they are, and knowing how popular her owl blankets are, I decided to grab a copy of the new Hooded Owl Poncho by MJ’s Off the Hook Designs.  The poncho has a cute owl face on it’s hood.

I’m making one for my granddaughter and since it was on sale, I decided to purchase the entire kit, instead of just the pattern.  I’m so glad that I did because I was introduced to Craftsy’s Sprightly yarn and I LOVE it.

I love Sprightly yarns!

Before I go any further I want to say that this post does NOT contain any affiliate links. I just really like using the yarn I got in the kit.

I like the way it drapes, and that isn’t only because of the hook size I’m using.  Part of the pattern calls for a hook size of 5.5mm and the other part calls for a 6.5mm crochet hook.

The yarn is a 4 worsted weight and they recommend using a 6mm hook so you can see that the hooks being used for the owl poncho create both a tighter and looser stitch than what is recommended.  Both are still giving me a nice drape.

Sprightly yarn is 100% acrylic, machine washable, made in Turkey and it’s sold in skeins that are 201 yards/ 184m 100 g/3.5 oz.

Working on my Hooded Owl Poncho.

I haven’t quite finished my project – I decided I wanted to change out a couple of the colors that came in the kit-  but I’ve already ordered some more of this great yarn while it’s on sale.

How could I resist when I love it so much?

What is your all-time favorite yarn?

I’m finding that I have different favorites for different projects. Do you have a favorite type or a go-to brand?  Share your thoughts about yarn obsession in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers.

Color Names of the Yarns Shown Above

  • Suede
  • Grass
  • Lagoon
  • White
  • Brown

I decided that I’d like the owl’s pupils to be black instead of the brown that came in the kit I chose.  I’m also changing the beak color.  Nothing wrong with the way it was presented and I was able to choose my colorway.  I simply changed my mind after receiving it.   I’ll share the completed poncho when I get it done.

This poncho pattern is also available for sale at Ravelry.
