This Weeks Questions
What can I Crochet in Summer?
Anything!


Cotton Yarns
Let me tell you a secret, But you can't tell anyone.
(shhhhπŸ˜‰)
Any Pattern that calls for Acrylic yarn (WW 4) can be
 crocheted with cotton of similar weight.
 Just remember Cotton does not stretch, but the item 
will have stretch after you crochet with it.
Hats, headbands, cowls, washcloths, towels, coasters  and more.


 The only thing I do not recommend making out of cotton 
yarn is blankets, unless its a very soft cotton.
It has been my experience that cotton yarn is just too heavy.


How Do you attach a Rose to an finished project 

Pin the rose on

The washcloth can be crocheted with Cotton yarn,

The Washcloth can also be used as a dish cloth,
