Updated: Apr 11

** OP on my Ko-fi Blog 05/06/2020

*** NEW!***

Get full access to my entire pattern library through Infiniti Crafting Co's membership program! Learn to make all of my designs from Sentro Kneesocks to crochet shawls. I am a crochet and knitwear designer of 10+ years with a library of more than 40 designs.

In this program, not only do you get access to the written patterns and Sentro Maker Notes but, you get access to exclusive video tutorials that take you through the projects step-by-step.

Join me twice a month for new patterns & projects and occasionally, bonus projects, unreleased to the public.

This list will be updated as I experiment with new fibers! Feel free to comment if you've found different yarns that have worked for you!

Red Heart Super Saver

This yarn is hit or miss when it comes to the Sentro Knitting Machine. Some colors of this yarn are more coarse and lead to dropped stitches and lots of frustration.

Red Heart Stripes (Super Saver)

The Flemenco Stripe colorway in particular did not agree with my machine and caused imperfections in all three projects I attempted with it. It's definitely a no from me!

Fiber: 100% Acrylic

Weight: 4 Medium (5oz/141g per skein)

Measure: 236 yds/215m

This silky texture acrylic yarn works well in the Sentro.

Fiber: 100% Acrylic

Weight: 4 Medium 3.5 oz or 100g

Measure: 147 yds/134 m

This yarn glides through the feeder and between the hooks like butter! If you begin your project with a 12 inch tail, you can get 92 rows in before you either need to cast off or join a new skein. My favorite thing to make with this yarn is a double knit infinity scarf! They take about 30 -40 minutes and make a great gift for the winter season.

Despite being acrylic, this yarn is ultra silky feeling and super cozy. The varigation provides an aestheically beautiful quality to your project that pairs perfectly with the feeling of autumn. Two skeins gives you a double-knit infinity cowl of 120 rows and a hat with a double knit brim of 66 rows.

Due to the thin nature of the strand, this brand of yarn is also a match made in heaven when it comes to my machine! Its one of the few 4 weight yarn that I use in this machine.

Update 10/06/2021: LB's Pound of Love has gotten a little thicker than it was in 2019! I've not had any issues with this change but it is something to keep in mind for future making.

Yarn Bee Caterina

This dk weight yarn effortlessly runs through this machine! I do recommend that you untangle/rewind this yarn because it tangles easily in general.

This yarn also works well in the machine.

Premier Just Yarn

This yarn works well also.

Lion Brand Basic Stitch Lion Brand and the Sentro seem to be a match made in heaven on this list so far.

This is one of the thicker 4- weight yarns that actually works on this machine.

Medium weight #4

This yarn is the bee's knees when paired with the Sentro. It is classified as a 3 weight yarn so it's no wonder! I've used this yarn for the 2021 scrunchy inventory and had no problems.

Because this yarn is on the thin side, you're going to have to double the strands to work with this on the Sentro. I was able to make some really beautiful socks on this machine which I showed off on my live channel chat in October 2021.

CYC 1 Weight Yarn

166 yds

75% Wool, 25% Nylon

Machine Wash and Dry

Lion Brand Truboo Yarn

This yarn could work out in the machine with a single strand. I loved using it for my trademark scrunchies that I keep stocked. It provides a silky, breathable texture and is super shiny. I've also worked it double stranded and it still worked out but, dropping stitches was also more possible. The resulting fabric is super squishy.

Weight Category: CYC 3 Medium

Weight: 3.5oz (100g), 216.5y (198m)

Knit Gauge: 4in = 24 stitches on size US 6 needle

The drape and feel of this yarn was so nice. It is a thinner yarn so you will most definitely need to double strand it.
