Yarn Eating Patterns

Textured crochet patterns make all the difference, that's for sure. But they are also excellent yarn eaters. So if you plan on using a textured pattern for your project, you have to carefully calculate how much yarn you need for it, if you don't want to play yarn chicken. However, if you have a lot of yarn in your stash that you want to clear off of your shelves - these are the perfect choice!

I'll start with my current favourites which include the cable and bobble stitch. Next in line is the crocodile and the waffle stitch. More intricate textures: chained shells, chained fans, waves and the larksfoot stitch. There are tons more, depending on the effect you are looking for and are most drawn into. 

So, what's your favourite stitch?

The larksfoot stitch has always been my favourite, but those chained shells look very eye-catching as well!

I love texture but you are correct it does eat the yarn.

They are on my to-try list, and I was thinking of a cushion or blanket, for it, but I am not sure if I can afford the luxury of time to dedicate to such a project at the time being.
