I know that some people, especially beginner crocheters, are a little scared of my fuzzy yarn patterns. And now that eyelash and novelty yarns aren’t as easy to find as they once were, I wanted to come up with an alternative to give my old patterns (pictured below) a new lease of life…

And if that, by itself, isn’t enough information for you, I’ve written a whole tutorial on how to convert Fuzzy patterns to Brushed Crochet patterns. The tutorial also features a discussion on back loops only vs crocheting into both loops, and which side is the ‘right’ side when making amigurumi, so it’s worth checking out!
