Bernat Blanket Breezy is a unique yarn that combines warmth and lightness – and is perfect for your next home décor project!
This cake yarn is a thin, skinny chenille – though it’s still a bulky! Chenille yarn is made by inserting short lengths of yarn, called the pile, between two core yarns. Then the core yarns are twisted together! This causes the piles to stand at right angles to the core yarns. The piles are very secure inside the core.
It’s essentially yummy fuzziness attached to a string! This makes it super textured, but you don’t have to worry about any splitting or fuzzing, no matter how sharp your hook or needles might be!
One of my favorites things about Bernat Blanket Breezy are the long color changes! This self-striping yarn is truly perfect for crochet as well as knitting – you get great chunks of color and colorblocking without extra ends!
There are 10 lovely colorways of Bernat Blanket Breezy, and I love the variation! Everything from brights to soft neutrals to jewel tones to kid-ready – there’s an amazing range for just 10 options! Go with Hint of Mint for something soft and calming, Secret Garden for lush elegance, or Electro Pop for fun and excitement!
What you can’t see through the screen is just how squishy this yarn is – and just how lightweight! Handmade blankets can be quite heavy, but not with Bernat Blanket Breezy. The piles are full of air and projects made with this yarn are like warm cozy air! I made the Calming Breezy Throw with three balls of Breezy yarn. My blanket pattern is free and available on Yarnspirations.com!
Of course, all this texture makes seeing your stitches just a little more difficult than with a smooth yarn. With knitting, you can separate the loops on your needles to see the individual stitches. However, with crochet it can be a little trickier. A bit of experience is therefore recommended for this yarn! My helpful hints are to move up a hook size or two if needed, use bright lighting, take your time, and trust your hook to guide you.
Overall, Bernat Blanket Breezy is a fun and special yarn that will add texture and color to your next crochet or knit project – I enjoyed crafting with it, and I think you will too! Find me on MooglyBlog.com and don’t forget to share with me your Bernat Blanket Breezy projects.
