Match Thread Color Perfectly to Yarn

Color Match Your Thread and Your Yarn

match thread color

Color match thread to ANY yarn . It doesn’t matter how crazy, custom or discontinued, there is thread that matches your yarn perfectly.

I was knitting my new doll pattern which calls for a tiny button on the top. I needed thread instead of yarn because the button holes were so tiny. Well the yarn was out of the question but I did want the thread used to sew the button to match the yarn exactly,

I discovered the perfect hack and you already have the supplies needed to accomplish this little trick.

Use Your Yarn to Match Thread Color

Most yarn is 2 or 4 ply. In my case almost 95.9% of the time my yarn is 4 ply. This makes the hack easy as pie. For those of you that don’t know what a hack is, here is one definition: a quick solution that solves a problem.

Below are the steps.

match thread color

  1. Take your yarn that you want to match and pull the 2 or 4 ply strands apart. This gives you a thread you can easily manage.
  2. Thread your needle with your new matching thread
  3. Done

Yarn used in feature pictures – Red Heart Super Saver – super cheap, lots and lots of great colors and it’s 4-ply just like I like it.

Don’t you just love it with the world is aligned perfectly and easily just for your needs. Yea !

    Laughing at myself, Denice! When I got the email notification about this post I thought, “But you don’t need thread, because you can just split the yarn…” Glad we’re on the same wavelength!

    Thanks Denise. Would never have thought about this. Haven’t gotten to your doll yet. Very busy working on several of your other great projects. 🙂
