    I'm using this yarn for the daisy-stitched surplice top, #6, from Vogue Knitting Sp/Sm 2011. Sometimes I think I can make a better yarn choice than the pattern designer, but here I think this yarn is perfectly matched to pattern. Delighted with the soft sheen, silky texture, smooth stitches. The multiple plies give the yarn a light springiness when knitted that combats cotton's dense fuzziness. Looks like it's blended with silk, the yarn has such nice shine and drape.

    It's going to look great in this pattern, but I think I would also like it in a cute crocheted sun hat, or a lace wrap/shawl to go with a summer dress. Covington is a heavier weight yarn so I might not want to make a huge project with it, but it's great for a summer top or accessory.

    I bought this to knit a baby blanket and was excited to get it on a great sale. My mom specifically wanted a cotton blanket and asked for colors that weren't available in the yarn I usually use for cotton projects. So I had to find something new.
    This yarn wasn't anywhere near as soft as I would like for a baby blanket, the texture, although not coarse, wasn't very plush and it's very shiny. Just not my cup of tea. Also in ONE SKEIN of this yarn I encountered THREE knots!! In a yarn of this quality and price I would expect MUCH better than that. Ridiculous. I also had problems with it unraveling and with individual threads that had snapped throughout the yarn.
    Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it for this project although I'm unhappy with it.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Covington:

    I made a striped summer sweater using moss and blue. They look very nice together. I didn't particularly like knitting with this yarn as it is slippery, but I like the garment. I knit using the Portuguese method because that seemed to keep the tension better. Also one of the skeins had several knots, which I thought I could just knit through, but ended up ripping it out. Overall liked the yarn. I am finishing up the sweater now, so I will have to see how comfortable it is to wear in the summer.

      Quality cotton yarn at a great price. I have used this yarn for a variety of things including scarves, baby clothes, gloves and more. I love the way it feels when I'm knitting. . . .no shredding, splitting, etc. It's easy to pick up a pattern when interrupted. Having worked with a number of cotton yarns, this remains one of my favorites. Would recommend to others!

        I use this yarn for almost anything. Have even used it for teaching others to knit or crochet. Easy to work with whether knitting or crocheting. Patterns are quickly established and followed. I call this "my go to yarn". Would readily recommend to others.

              I really enjoy the feel of 'good' yarn and the look of cotton or a cotton mix with a slight sheen. I strike out on my own and use whatever yarn I want for projects that may suggest drastically different yarn. Using a yarn that you enjoy increases one's love of knitting.

                  I used this in conjuction with another yarn and absolutely loved the way it worked out.
                  Sometimes it's dangerous working 2 different types of yarn together but because this is such an easy yarn it combined nicely.

                      I have knitted/crocheted everything from scarves, hats, cowls, afghans, baby blankets and yes even a sweater with this yarn. Easy and quick to use. Since wool seems to make my hands itch, I have often changed a "suggested" yarn to this cotton. Have not had any problems with splitting, piling, etc. Love the colors as well!!
