7 Designs to Knit and Crochet in New Basic Yarn

New Basic 175 yarn comes in a beautiful palette of 24 colors that blend together wonderfully. (See color inspiration on our Pinterest board!) It is a single ply yarn weighing in at a CYC #4, or medium/worsted weight. The spin and fiber create a soft halo around the strand, giving a soft muted feel to your stitches. Due to this you will want to stay away from complex stitch patterns and opt for simpler ones, clean lines, color changes, and other fuss-free techniques.
