What you do with paper yarn.

Since we got the paper yarn, everyone says, "Well, that's interesting. But what do you do with it?" We've come up with a couple of things.

Diane came up with a pattern for a hat. And, here's a bonus - if you turn it over and make the brim longer, it makes a bag! This is a free pattern offered in the shop. It makes an adult-sized hat (which I crocheted in the green) and a kid-sized hat (which Diane crocheted in the pink. I ought to add, even though I used a size bigger hook than she did, I'm pretty sure I crochet much more loosely than she does.)

We also have a couple of pattern books that feature this yarn. This shoulder bag is from one of them - Katia Sport. Katia publishes a series of magazines each year (one for babies, one for kids, one that's casual, one that's dressy. Sport is the casual one.) The pattern book has a lot of great patterns for spring and summer tops, also.

Next up - placemats! I'll post those with the pattern as soon as I'm finished making one.
