15+ Patterns That Use ‘I Love This Yarn’ From Hobby Lobby

Looking for I Love This Yarn crochet patterns? I’ve got you covered, with blankets, hats and more that use Hobby Lobby’s signature yarn!

Maybe you’ve been in the crafty mood lately, but you just can’t seem to justify the price of more yarn…

You have some ‘I Love This Yarn’ from Hobby Lobby in your stash, so you search up on google to find the best pattern.

To your dismay, there aren’t that many patterns out there!

When I saw the lack of patterns for this yarn showing up, I decided to scour the internet! I found 15 pretty cool patterns that I’m excited to show you today.

But first…

What is ‘I Love This Yarn’?

The ‘I Love This Yarn’ Brand is a yarn brand that is found almost exclusively at Hobby Lobby. It is an affordable yarn that is great for beginners. I would say it is kind of like Hobby Lobby’s signature yarn brand. Think of it like the Red Heart Super Saver of Hobby Lobby! 🤪

Unlike Super Saver, however, I Love This Yarn comes in a variety of weights, colors, and fibers. Here are the different types of ‘I Love this Yarn’ that I have found:

Most Common: I Love This Yarn Medium (#4) Weight, 100% Acrylic

Other Variations:

As you can see, there are 5 different options when it comes to this yarn, from lightweight all the way up to chunky!

However, the most popular is definitely the first listed: the standard I Love This Yarn in Worsted Weight acrylic.

For this reason, all the patterns I have included below will use this popular option…except for one! One of the patterns does use I Love This Chunky Yarn, so look out for that one too! 😉

Without further ado, let’s check out a few of my absolute favorite projects that use this yarn!

Using ‘I Love this Yarn’ as a Yarn Substitute

The truth is, there are not a plethora of crochet patterns on the internet that are specifically designed for ‘I Love This Yarn.’ The 15 above were some of the best I could find!

However, the important thing to know about this yarn is that it is very easy to substitute. If you are making a pattern that calls for Red Heart Super Saver, for example, there is a good chance that you can use the I Love This Yarn you have in your stash instead.

I Love This Yarn is pretty much a standard worsted weight craft yarn, and it can be substituted easily for similar yarns.

As far as the other variations (like lightweight and chunky) you’ll want to be a little more careful with substitution. Always make sure that you substitute the same weights of yarn for each other. You should also take care to meet gauge if the pattern specifies one.


‘I Love This Yarn’ is a great yarn for those getting started with crocheting. It is soft, easy to use, and comes in so many color options! Though there aren’t a lot of patterns for it out there, these 14 should be a great place to get started. I hope you liked this roundup and found your next project in the list!
