DROPS - Cotton 100%
Cotton for practical days and imaginative moments. Yarn of cotton can do many wonders. First of all, much of the clothes we use and live in, is made of cotton of all kinds of qualities and from all parts of the world. This has made cotton one of the most popular materials in the world, and there is also a very good reason for that. The cotton is suitable for many seasons, depending on the type you choose to knit.
It is therefore very easy to find cotton clothes in all clothing stores and webshops. But if you want to know exactly where your clothes is coming from, you can choose to knit some of it from scratch, by yourself. And there are many possible projects, you can try out.
For example, you can choose to knit lightweight t-shirts in fashionable cuts or knit light summer dresses for both big and small children.
Cotton with many options
When you are doing these projects, of course the level of experience matter when it comes to your previous knitting projects and when you choose your next knitting project. However, in the last couple of years, a lot of people have begun knitting or resumed this hobby, since the internet has made it easier than ever, to find patterns for everything from dish cloths and towels to potholders and small table cloths.
In general, cotton is a great choice if you want to practice knitting, but can't afford to spend too much money on the first yarn clews, if the project for some reason, might not turn out, the way you wanted it. Cotton is also really good to use, if you havn't worked to much with knitting needles. That's because the cotton yarn is very compact, which makes it easy for you to see, how fare you have come, and if everything looks as it should. And then it is also more permitted that you try to squeeze and fumble a bit with the cotton, compared to a more sensitive type of yarn - and this is actually very needed, if you are a beginner and still in the learning process.
If you are no longer a beginner, but still want to try to knit anything other than sweaters, socks and other clothes, you can start making small festoon lights. Basically you knit small round balls that can be put on the festoon lights. They can be knitted in different patterns so that the light will shine through the balls. An obvious choice for the children's room would for example be colourful festoon lights that could light up during the winter.
The cotton is available in many qualities and at many different prices. Basically, it is a good idea to invest in good quality cotton, otherwise you may lose the shape from the hood or shirt more quickly for example.
