It’s another Yarn Review Saturday here and today we’re taking a look at some We Crochet Palette Yarn. This is a fingering weight wool yarn that comes with an impressive colour selection to choose from. I’ve had the opportunity to try out some really fabulous fingering weight yarns so I’m interested to see of We Crochet Palette Yarn stacks up in comparison.
This yarn was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Check out the video review of We Crochet Palette yarn:
I received a few different colourways of We Crochet Palette Yarn to try out. I got some of the Palette Twist yarn, two different shades of pink and some Ashphalt Heather. The colours were really pretty and I loved the Palette Twist yarn the second I saw it. I wasted no time starting a project with this yarn because the colours just worked together so well.
I am seriously impressed the the array of colours available in We Crochet Palette Yarn. 156 colours in total?! That’s crazy and I love it. It’s designed for colourwork so if you want to make a project that has an ombre effect or has a ton of different colours, the selection of colours in this yarn can’t be beat.
Crocheting with We Crochet Palette Yarn
This fingering weight yarn is durable and soft enough to be worn next to skin. The yarn was enjoyable to work with and once I got past the foundation rows of my project, started to work. up quickly. There were couple of issues with splitting while doing my foundation rows with the Ashphalt Twist crochet swatch but it was minimal and once I got further into the swatch, it was no longer an issue.
For the Ashphalt Twist swatch, I did the basic stitches and then finished off the swatch withsome tunisian simple stitch. Stitch definition is minimal due to the marled effect of the yarn. I’d probably stick to simple stitches when creating with the Palette Twist yarn to let the twist be featured instead of the stitchwork.
For my pink swatch, I did the basic crochet stitches starting with double crochet, moving to half double crochet and then finishing off the swatch with single crochet. The yarn was great to work with, not issues with splitting and it had great stitch definition. As I work with more fingering weight yarns, I’m finding that starting with foundation stitches instead of working into a chain is much quicker and less tedious. If you haven’t tried doing foundation stitchces before you can learn how to do them here:
This yarn would be great for a wide variety of projects and I am still blown away by the colour availability in the Palette yarn line from We Crochet. I’ve already started a project with my yarn and am hoping to design a shawl with it. Have you tried We Crochet Palette yarn yet? What did you think? What would you make with it?
