My middle daughter and I went to the grand opening of the new Joann’s store in our home town. The three aisles of yarn were wonderful! I loved looking at the Caron One Pounder – they had a bunch of vibrant colors. Caron One Pound is a good sturdy yarn which makes almost anything. It works wonderfully for afghans, clothing, stuffed animals, pillows. It’s a good all purpose yarn which comes in a large variety of solid colors. In the store, they displayed several colors organized beautifully. I wanted to buy 1 of each and make an afghan or a dozen other things.
The nice thing about the one pounder is you get 16 ounces of yarn so not a lot of joining new skeins if you’re working on a smaller project. Even a bigger project requires fewer number of joins. The price is fairly reasonable. Online I saw it priced from $7 – $9.99. The per ounce price is about $0.62. This is a good buy for good yarn.
The One Pounder is not as soft as the Simply Soft but it is still a good quality yarn. This is a worsted weight yarn – meaning it is not small like thread or baby yarn nor large like Bernat Blanket. For crochet, you would probably use a G – J size hook for projects.
