This is the ultimate list of no knit yarn crafts - Link roundup on A Pop of Red

It is no secret that I cannot knit or crochet, but that will not stop me from crafting with yarn and with this list of no knit yarn crafts anyone can enjoy the endless crafting possibilities of yarn!

After last year’s yarn theme craft challenge with Erika and Megan, I decided to look into more yarn crafts that don’t require knitting or crochet skills. I was surprised with how much I found! From pom poms to string art to jewelry, the yarn projects were truly endless and that inspired this roundup.

Oh, and don’t worry about me. I have not given up on knitting quite yet. With my Grannie at my side and Erika’s new intro to knitting video series I have plenty of help to get me stitching. I just hope my teachers know how much trouble I will be to teach!

Anyways, on with the fun. Let’s start off the list of no knit yarn crafts with three pom pom yarn projects. My favourite here: the emojis for sure! There were lots of posts with pom pom ideas but the emojis really stand out!

You can make several types of flowers by working with yarn in different ways. These three yarn crafts show three different yarn flower techniques, all beautiful in their own right.

Yarn is also a great accent for decor pieces like the ever-so-popular monogram trend. But don’t forget the embellishments on larger letters, they just complete the whole feel!

Keeping up with the yarn decor, you can use yarn for string art. Yarn works just as well as string and gives more body to the art you make. I think the little cards are my favourite in this bunch!
