What to Crochet With Cotton Yarn?

The easy answer is almost anything, you’ll be surprised at how many cotton yarn crochet patterns you will find online!

Cotton is a perfect choice when you make home decor items, especially for items you use in the kitchen and table, such as placemats, pot holders or dishcloths

Basically, any item you think that you would use a lot and want to last long, can be made with cotton. Like bags, pillows, rugs, and even scarves!

Also, when making baby items is recommended to use cotton which is soft and nice on their skin.

What Can You Make With Fine Cotton Yarn?

I know that working with fine yarn like Fingering (#1) and Sport (#2) is not always easy, but you can find plenty of beautiful patterns for this kind of yarn!

The obvious thing would be to make a doily, usually with #1 yarn. You can also make a light and airy shawl, or a quick and fun bookmark (perfect gift for book lovers!).

  1. Thank you for this bundle of cotton yarn projects. I found a few items that I really want to make. They are small and shouldn’t take too long so provide a sense of accomplishment in a finished project. It’s hard to keep focused on a large or complicated project when the sun is shining. Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to give us this collection.
