Great Product Finds
When summer arrives and the days turn sultry, we always think of cotton yarns for warm-weather crocheting! Recently introduced, Anne from Plymouth Yarn is sure to become a favorite with 60 solid colors and 24 variegated and ombré shades to choose from. This machine-washable and -dryable 100% mercerized cotton fingering-weight yarn has a subtle sheen making it the ideal choice for wearables, but don't limit your imagination. Anne works equally well for home decor projects too. We picture lacy summer tops, openwork shawls and breezy slouchy hats in ocean blues. For the younger set, how about a cute cardigan sprinkled with fun crochet flowers in bright colors, or a just-right blanket for a June baby. Throws, table runners or candle wraps in citrus colors would add an inviting touch to a summery porch setting. With an economical price and 371 yards per 100-gram hank, all you need is your crochet hook to explore the endless possibilities! Our sample swatch was crocheted with a G/6/4mm hook and would make a perfect stitch for a lacy cami to wear with jeans now and under a jacket later.
