Within these three broad categories, you can achieve very different looks depending on whether the ‘lashes’ are long/short, straight/curly, intermittent/plentiful etc etc.
There are also different kinds of ‘fuzzy’ yarns, e.g. fluffy mohair blends, chenille or boucle. Any yarn with some textural variety will give a more interesting effect to your finished piece. Don’t be put off if the first fuzzy yarn you try leaves you frustrated – keep experimenting until you find yarns you like to work with!
To put it another way, always insert your hook from the middle towards the outside:
This way, most of the ‘fuzz’ will stay on the outside of the piece, which has two benefits:
The right side of the work (outside) – note it is lovely and fuzzy and the stitches are practically invisible.
The wrong side of the work (inside) – note it is much less fuzzy and it is much easier to see the stitches. The arrows show the front loops of stitches from 2 rounds – by counting those ‘rings’ of front loops, you can see how many rounds you’ve made if you lose your place in the pattern!
