We’ve noticed a distinct trend this fall: crochet with faux fur yarn! Maybe we’re just noticing it because we love our fantastic faux fur yarn: Fable Fur, but we think faux fur crochet is here to stay! Faux fur yarn is a natural choice for fall and winter crochet because it’s so touchable and warm.
Many of our crochet friends are working with faux fur yarn, so we’ve collected all those projects for you to check out below. But first…

Fur-Ever Infinity Scarf by Ashlea Konecny of Heart Hook Home
Ashlea Konecny is one of our favorite crocheters, and she used Fable Fur to crochet the Fur-Ever Fur Infinity Scarf. You just need three skeins of Fable Fur (Ashlea used the Kuma colorway) to make the scarf. Then you will have enough left over to make ear warmers or several pom-poms.

Crocheting Faux Fur Tips from Nicki:
Nicki has designed a couple of different crochet patterns featuring Fable Fur, and she has a couple of tips:

- Try using a wooden crochet hook if you find a metal or plastic hook is too slippery.

Where did these cuffs get their cute name? Ashlea writes: The “Faux Sho” Fur Boot Cuffs are the latest in my pun-filled adventures. I hope you love them and that the name gives you a giggle each time you put them on. “Am I wearing my Faux Fur boot cuffs today? FO SHO I am!”
