Who said cotton was just for summer? These new cotton/wool blends are perfect for year-round wear!
European Style: Cotton Merino from Katia is soft and luxurious. This beautiful blend of cotton and merino is light and airy with a lovely sheen. Katia’s Concepts No. 1 pattern booklet is filled with great patterns to knit and crochet featuring both Cotton Merino and Cotton Merino Plus, along with numerous other Katia yarns. There are nearly 40 knit and crochet patterns in this pattern book.
American Style: Cotolana from Berroco.
Machine washable, chainette construction, worsted yet lightweight, and available in a palette of softly muted colors.
While I failed to snap any photos of this lovely yarn, I do have links to several FREE patterns featuring Cotolana. The headband, pullover (with sizes ranging from 36-60″), and scarf are all courtesy of Berroco. Simply click on the photos below to download the pattern.
Today I’m feeling like sharing a skein of Cotolana with someone. I’m putting together a kit with one skein of Cotolana and the Clafoutis headband pattern, and will select one lucky winner. Simply comment with which color you’d like to win. You can see the colors here. You have until midnight tonight.
