Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Free Crochet Patterns
Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn is a #4 worsted weight cotton yarn. It is not only suitable for dishcloths, but for a variety of other crochet patterns as well. It is a natural and super absorbent yarn, which makes it ideal for the kitchen, bath and for other items around the home. The softness of the yarn also makes it perfect for baby items.
The yarn is not only economical, but it is also durable and easy to care for. It is best when washed on the delicate cycle and dried at low temperatures in order for it to retain its natural beauty. It fuzzes a lot if not washed on the delicate cycle, and shrinks a lot if dried at high temperatures. (Yes, I learned this the hard way!)
The only downfall is that cotton does not have much stretch to it, and therefore, is not recommended for clothing items where stretch is required.
