Yarn Suggestions

I get a lot of emails asking what yarn I used on a specific pattern. Since I write patterns for easily-found and -affordable yarns here in the U.S., I have not specified in patterns but leave that choice open for the crocheter. Here are the yarns that I use as well as some recommended by my testers. We will be adding more yarns found in other countries as well. Maybe you will see a yarn you like on this list or you'd like to comment your own suggestions.

All companies make a black and a white, so I haven't included those on the list.
I also haven't included any colors like pink that are pretty interchangeable.

More to be added soon!
