What Yarn is Suitable for a Crochet Bed Runner?

This free crochet bed runner pattern can be worked up in any super bulky or chunky yarn. I chose to use a roving style yarn to re-create the look of those snuggly arm knitted blankets but without the weight of the yarn used to create them.

What is Roving Yarn?

Roving yarn is yarn that is loosely spun, where the fibres of the yarn are freer. This can mean that the yarn is harder to undo after working, making frogging (ripping out a row) can be a challenge.

You will also find that this yarn sheds when you are working with it – I made my bed runner while wearing black jeans and the result was interesting – a clothes brush was essential.

Roving yarn can also pill quicker than standard yarns when it is worked loosely or not crocheted tightly – but the finished look is stunning.

What Yarn was this bed runner stitched up in?

I used Sirdar Adventure Super Chunky (200g = 106 m/ 115 yds, 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool) in shade Golden Dawn.
