It's going to be hot in Florida for a few more months, so why not add more cotton inventory to our online store? The Cotton Supreme line from Universal Yarn is a great addition to your yarn stash for kids wear, warm-weather shrugs and tops, and even for shawls for those icy air-conditioned restaurants. Here's what's new online:
Cotton Supreme is a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn. The soft cotton features vivid color and works up well into summer tops and sweaters and also offers great stitch definition. Machine washable and dryable, Cotton Supreme softens as it washes – making it a great choice for adult and children’s garments.
Cotton Supreme Batik is the same soft 100% worsted weight cotton yarn as its sister Cotton Supreme, but has the added pop of personality of self-shading colors. These beautiful colorways coordinate with Cotton Supreme solids, and will hold up to the washing machine.
Cotton Supreme Sequins is an aran weight knitting and crochet yarn that has just the right amount of sequins threaded on for that added touch. This mostly cotton yarn has a touch of polyester for shape and wear. Cotton Supreme Sequins is a great choice for warm weather projects that need a little something extra.
Here are a few patterns we think will work well with these great cotton yarn choices:
- This Watermelon Beach tank for kids by Sarah Franklin looks great in Cotton Supreme Batik. Knit it a bit longer for a dress or swimsuit coverup, too. The shoulder ties are adorable.
- We love this cotton short-sleeved sweater, because it's perfect for warm weather. The Waterfront Pullover from Universal Yarn calls for two kinds of Cotton Supreme, so go ahead and mix your favorite Batik colorway with a solid!
- If you're in the mood for something different, try this vest with a lacy front panel and open back by Universal Yarn. The Pathways Vest is a great layering piece for any time of year in Florida, we think, and is designed with Cotton Supreme in mind. We also like the idea of using Cotton Supreme Sequins for this piece.
