30+ Free Crochet Patterns Using Red Heart Super Saver
Red Heart Super Saver yarn can sometimes have a bad rep, but there are lots of beautiful patterns you can make with Super Saver yarn and that’s what I’m here to bring you today! In today’s free crochet pattern roundup I’m going to share more than 30 free crochet patterns using Red Heart Super Saver yarn. These patterns vary from accessories to blankets to amigurumi so there is definitely something for everyone.
Before we get to the free crochet pattern roundup, let’s talk about some of the most asked questions and concerns about Red Heart Super Saver yarn.
What thickness is Red Heart Super Saver Yarn?
This yarn is a medium weight (#4) yarn and the recommended crochet hook size is in the 5mm-6mm range. However, follow the specific pattern you’re working on and start with the hook that’s used in the pattern.
What is Red Heart Super Saver good for?
In this roundup you will find over 30 free patterns using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and they range from garments to blankets to accessories. I think this yarn is great for a lot of different things.
First, if you’re a beginner, this yarn is great for practicing your stitches. It’s cheap, it’s a medium weight yarn, and it comes in many different colors which is one of the reasons why I recommend this yarn to my students who go through my free Learn To Crochet Masterclass.
This yarn is also great for accessories, kids toys, amigurumi, and blankets.
I will be honest and say that I do think there are better yarns to use for blankets, however, I do have a crocheted blanket that’s been in my family for over 20 years that uses this yarn and I love it. It’s still in really great condition. Now let’s talk about way to make it softer and less scratchy.
If you’re creating one of these garments with Red Heart Super Saver, make sure you create a gauge swatch and adjust your hook accordingly to ensure your finished project will fit.
How do you make Red Heart Super Saver Yarn softer?
This is one of the reasons why Red Heart Super Saver Yarn has a bit of a bad rep. Many people, including myself, feel that this yarn can be a bit scratchy. However, there are ways to make it softer, if needed.
Like I mentioned above, when I was younger my family was gifted a large, beautiful crocheted blanket using Red Heart Super Saver. This blanket has been washed many, many times and it looks just as good as it did the day we received it AND it’s a whole lot softer. So one of the ways to make Red Heart Super Saver softer is to wash your project a bunch.
Is Red Heart Super Saver a good yarn?
Overall, yes absolutely! Red Heart Super Saver is a great yarn when used for the right projects in the right ways. Sometimes it can be scratchy so you’ll want to be aware of that, but there are ways to make it softer. And if you’re not interested in washing it to make it feel less scratchy, then don’t use this yarn when making clothing or blankets. Use it more for bags, baskets, or accessories.
