Cotton Ease

Whilst cleaning up the stash this weekend, I discovered that I had at least 10 balls each of red, turquoise, purple, orange and hot pink Cotton Ease (all purchased at clearance at Joanns). I think the idea was that I would have enough for cardigans and/or tanks in each color. Even at 1.50/skein, I shudder at the amount I spent.

I belonged to the cotton ease group at yahoo, but its kind of fizzled as most people have used up alot of theirs.

I am looking for pattern ideas that you all may have used for this yarn that worked. I have some bookmarked - but am looking for more ideas!


I did this hat with Bernat cotton tots. Its a worsted weight cotton yarn similar to cotton ease with a bit smaller guage. But I imagine the pattern I made up will work well for it. Granted… you’ll have to make a lot of hats to use up all your yarn.

Good luck!

Even though it’s been discontinued they have some ideas on the LB site.

Did you get this in your inbox this morning from Berroco?

I love this one
