What a lucky crocheter I am!  AllFreeCrochet contacted me to review some yarn and create a crochet project with it.  I was a little hesitant because what if the yarn wasn’t that great?  I should have known I'd have nothing to worry about with AllFreeCrochet – they sent me seven skeins of Lion Brand's Cotton Ease yarn, which I had already worked with and love.  It’s a great year-round weight yarn with just the right combination of cotton and acrylic, making it durable, easy to care for, and reasonably priced while not sacrificing quality and texture.  I’ve used this yarn many times to create baby items because it works up into a soft, lustrous fabric for baby.  It’s great for mom too because the garment becomes easy to wash and keeps its shape.

Cotton Ease comes in a beautiful color array as well.  The Almond is a cream color that is not too yellow or too white, and the Maize, Lime, and Terra Cotta are also rich and true to their names.  Although the color palette that’s offered in Cotton Ease is not a typical one for babies and toddlers, the Berry (a dusty mauve) and Seaspray (a medium sky blue) are more traditional choices.

As a crocheter, working with Cotton Ease is quite pleasurable.  The yarn feels great in your hands, and the stitch definition is top notch.  You might experience a little bit of splitting of the yarn when you first get started, but with a metal hook, you’ll soon minimize that distraction.  And I hope you’ll enjoy making the Radiance Lap Throw with this wonderful yarn.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have liked this yarn ever since it first came on the scene. It's easy to work with and the color is consistent. There are no surprises half way thru a skein like some others. And no breakage either. The color choices are extremely good. I can usually find one that matches the color I have in mind.

Very nice, I love Cotton wool to knit or crochet. Good luck to everyone. Joyce.
