It's also quite a bit heavier than other yarns of the same weight class. I was in a store one time, standing next to a lady who picked several skeins of cotton yarn. Holding them in her arms, not in a basket or bag, she stopped in her tracks, looked at me and said she thought the yarn felt too heavy for a baby blanket. She put them back and purchased a nice acrylic yarn.Judy M said:Cotton may shrink when washed, so you might want to make it larger.
Yes. I crocheted a baby's blanket using the YarnBee 100% cotton. It is soft and beautiful to work with. I wish I bought more asked do not have a Hobby Lobby here in Canada. If you look in the "photo" section, I had posted a photograph of the blanket.mmpaladino said:Has anyone used Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee Cotton DK? I want to knit a baby blanket, probably C2C. The yarn is 100% cotton. I have never made a baby blanket in cotton yarn. Mustard is the color. Thank you for your help.
