We've published a blog post answering the most commonly-asked general questions about Yarnlings™️, which is HERE, but thought it would also be helpful to create a post with lots of ideas on what to do with them. Scroll forth and be inspired! 

(Oh, and yes - I did get the word Yarnlings™️ trademarked - wouldn't you?!? 🤣)

Patterns specifically calling for Yarnlings™️
