I crochet mainly for charity, and this would be great for items for the homeless
Would like to try this.
Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity. I have not tried Heat Wave yet.
As someone with Raynaud's, a simple, but cute, hand warmers pattern would be great!
I have Scleroderma (and Raynaud's) and bought some of this yarn hoping to make mittens, but cannot find a pattern for it yet. I would love to see something that fully covers the fingers!
I would love to see a crochet sweater. Right now I am using this yarn for hats and scarves
I bought a couple skeins of this yarn to make a blankie for my cat, I got the idea from a fellow crocheter. My cat loves laying in the sun, so I figured she'd love something warm to snuggle on in the winter.
Would especially love a pattern for texting gloves/wrist warmers, with an additional bit that turns them into regular mittens.
My feet are always cold , would love to see socks or slippers.
Glad to see patterns showing up for this yarn!
Wow, this looks pretty cool! Get it? Cool?
Thank you for the chance to win. This yarn will make any winter project extra toasty and cozy.
A headband/ear warmer would be great. Thank you!

Awesome giveaway. I've been wanting tyo try this yarn. Hands down I'm the winner...lol
I would love to make a cozy pullover with this yarn!

I’m all into Cardigans lately and would love to see a crocheted one made from Heat Wave.
A hat and scarf combo. My grandson asks every other year for me to crochet him a new one.

Definitely a hat made from this yarn because most of our heat is lost from the top of our head. Also gloves. I hate wearing mittens because it doesn't allow my fingers to be used. But I don't know how to crochet gloves. So that would be great for a tutorial on that with this yarn because my hands are always cold. Thank you for all you do in our yarn world! And thank you for this giveaway!
Fascinating! I am totally curious about this yarn.
A scoodie would be a great pattern!!
Definitely hats! Knit and crochet, since I can do both, like a round up of patterns that have been redone in RH Heat Wave.

Infinity scarves with hat
Definitely a slouchy!
Hats and scarves!
I would like to see a sturdy yet attractive blanket for homeless people.
Would love to see a hat and mitten combo with this yarn. I love the colors it comes in!
Every year I make a new hat for my granddaughter so this year would be fun to make one with heat wave and since there are such great colors I think a multi-stripe hat using your pattern would be perfect.
Would love to see gloves or mittens for the whole family or slippers. We have a cold older hand and slippers are always a must.
Does the heat increase work on cloudy days? Or at night?
Cloudy days yes, as long as there is UV light! At night you'd need a lamp. But it's still a warm aran, just not being activated by UV at night. 🙂
Can’t wait to try this yarn for hats for my grandchildren.
I'd love to make hats and scarves for the homeless with this yarn. Hope I win.

A scoodie or cowl would be great!
I have been wanting to make a poncho fkr a long time. Something good for train commuting and at work 🙂
I think hats are really best for Heat Wave. I've already done 2 for my family, and I've got 3 more to go!

Red Heart's Heat Wave would be wonderful for a matching ear warmer/wristers set!
I live in AZ not only do I think that this yarn would be great for cancerpatients but would be awesome for the field workers. The homeless if donated to then would be great. All could wear hats scarves mittens and the field workers wear bandanas to cover for insects chemicals and crop in general.
The playoff poncho would definitely be my first choice for this Yarn. I love ruannas and ponchos and think that this would be perfect for me. But I think I make double up on the collar so I can roll it over.
Simple Beanie patterns to fit baby, child, and adult. I am new to this. simple christmas decorations to make as well

I am living on a fixed income and can not afford to buy a lot of yarn. This would be wonderful to win. Thanks for doing this.
Hello, I have some of the heat wave yarn, and would like to make headbands with it, but I'm worried about the warning that said not to expose it to high frequencies. Headbands are worn around the ears. Would a cell phone put off high frequencies? What would be considered high frequency?
Hi Angela! I asked Yarnspirations about this when it first debuted, and cell phone frequencies shouldn't be an issue. It's very rare, very high frequencies that might be an issue - nothing we'd normally encounter, as far as I understand. 🙂
