I used the handknit cotton to make a striped baby blanket for my nephew. The colors are bright and the yarn doesn't bleed in the wash. It was easy to work with and shows the detail of the work nicely. I did have a little trouble when weaving in my multiple ends as the yarn isn't plush enough to do a good job of hiding that necessary evil. Overall, I loved it so much, I bought more to make another blanket in little girl colors too!

I was using this yarn to make booties. Unfortunately one of the skeins had 3 places where the yarn was joined together. It kind of left me with a bad tasteConnie

      Comments about Rowan Handknit Cotton:

      I am making a summer blanket with it for a toddler. There is great stitch definition. It is not quite as soft as I would have liked but I hope it will soften with wear and washing. I loved the color choices. Only one skein out of 8 had a knot. The plys do not separate.

        Comments about Rowan Handknit Cotton:

        If you make a mistake and try and fix picking the stitches often results in split yarn making it difficult to pick up stitch so that it looks like the already knitted stitch.

          Comments about Rowan Handknit Cotton:

          I love this cotton! I am knitting a simple cardigan with it. The cotton feels luxurious and smooth. The stitches show up beautifully. It's so wonderful to work with that it is theraputic for my nerves. The cardigan is nothing to brag about but the fiber will make this a show stopper for sure! I will be buying more of this cotton as soon as I am finished with this project.

              I make washcloths to sell with homemade soap. I create circular scarves for myself and I just made a meditation shawl which I will try to sell. I love cotton yarn. It is the right weight and warmth for the weather in the Pacific NW.

                      At first I thought that this yarn was DK when I got it in the mail, but it ended up being worsted and worked out perfectly for an amigurumi toy I was making for a baby. I am using the yarn to make a baby blanket now and would use it again for baby items I plan to crochet.
