How to Crochet With Faux Fur Yarn

Working with fuzzy and furry yarns can be intimidating, but let me tell you - it’s not as hard as it looks and it’s totally worth it! I’ve designed 3 patterns using faux fur yarn and mention a few tips and tricks for working with it in those patterns. Hint: stitch markers and holding double stranded with a non-fur yarn can help immensely ;)
