We also have a collection of patterns to compliment this beautiful new yarn. Baby hats and booties, a baby bolero, a colourful cushion and a throw, plus two avian friends to chose from (either chicks or birds), that all use the 4ply cotton.

And for the XL cotton we have a cute fox toy and leaf table decorations.

Fun, bright colours are covered by Rico with their double knitting weight cotton. This mercerised cotton has a slight lustre giving it a lovely smooth finish and feel.

Happy knitting and crocheting!

    I have 12 balls and skeins of very colorful cottons, however i have never found anything to make with them. Any and all suggestions are more than welcomed. I do not have kids,teens or? to knit for. This would be a project for me only, size 42 bust if a vest is being considered.

      Hi! Lucky you! It depends what thickness yarn you have as to which patterns we can recommend, but I would certainly start by having a browse on Ravelry. You can either look up the yarn you have and search projects other people have made in the same yarn, or you can search for patterns that use the same weight.

      Have fun!

        Thank you for the reply. I decided you write to you because what I have is exactly as the photos of the cotton yarns you showed. I have checked Ravelry but not been able to find anything suitable for my taste.
        Again, thanks for your suggestion.
