Buy six Snack balls in any colors and save.
This is the same versatile DesigningVashti Lotus yarn in a mini ball. It’s one-third the size of a full ball. Choose suggested color combinations in a drop-down menu below, or create your own custom six-pack from the 20 colors we have in stock. Watch Ellen Gormley crochet with Lotus in her yarn unboxing video!
The starting yarn end of its center-pull “cake” ball is attached to the yarn label and waiting for you. It’s wound to sit flat next to you while you crochet (no more rolling onto the floor).
Patterns & Project Ideas
- Browse our Lotus patterns for those that need no more than 512 yards (total amount of six Snack balls), such as Petals and Cantina.
- For a few thousand more pattern choices (!), browse self-updating search results for crochet only or knit only patterns for 300–510 yds of a sport weight yarn (links go to Ravelry). Or view a self-updating gallery of Lotus yarn patterns by all designers, also in Ravelry.
- Crochet it with two strands of it held together for small projects that call for medium weight (“worsted weight”) yarns. Snacks were used for some of the stripes of Starpath Scarf, for example. See this quick jewelry project: Tiki Wristbrace.
- Make several Color Chips and Candied Charms to use as jewelry gifts or as scarf dangles and other embellishments. (Vashti’s newsletter issue #56 is about other uses of the Color Chips idea.)
Use a tighter gauge for jewelry, bags, belts, and kitchen projects, such as an US E-4 (3.50 mm) crochet hook. For example, Vashti successfully substituted Lotus colors for her Aran Rozsanas pattern.
