Bernat Summer Cotton Afghan
We love cotton yarn – it’s a well known kitchen staple, perfect for dishcloths and small home dec pieces. But it’s time to take your cotton yarns out of the kitchen, and think big! Introducing the perfect summer cotton afghan – the Seashells by The Seashore Crochet Blanket
This summer, stitch a cotton afghan – the light weight yarn is great to work with in the warmer months, and you’ll use it all season long.
Use it as a classic throw, or take it with you on an adventure! Use it as a picnic blanket, beach throw, or to fend off the chill of a cool night in the backyard or at a kid’s soccer game! Cotton is versatile, durable, and comes in a wide variety of shades for any style or project. It’s worsted weight also makes it easy to sub into patterns that call for a heavier acrylic, or wool.
We crocheted the Seashells by the Seashore Blanket and took it on a picnic. The bright shades give it some nautical charm, perfect for a summer piece. Get the pattern here!
