Has anybody used cotton yarn to make blankets? I went on to Joann’s site to look at what colors they had for the Sugar 'N Cream cotton yarn, and there were some reviews commenting on how they’ve used the yarn to make blankets. I’m intrigued about being able to make a natural fiber blanket that doesn’t need TLC in caring for it–just throw it in the washer and dryer and be done! Here’s my questions to anybody that’s made blankets from the 100% cotton yarn:
[ul]Are they warm?
Are they comfortable?
Did you use multiple strands held together to knit the blanket, and if so, how many strands held together?
What size needle did you use if you used multiple strands held together?[/ul]
I was thinking of making a blanket for myself, and also, I have a friend having a spring baby that I thought a cotton blanket would be really nice for–not too hot, but a nice, natural fiber.
