My Observations

  • Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend is very enjoyable to crochet with, although it can catch a bit sometimes. I find a larger crochet hook easier to use
  • It’s perfect for spring/summer projects, being a light yarn and great for clothes too with the added polyester.
  • I love the variety of colours and it is very reasonably priced, although it can be hard to find depending on the colour you’re after.
  • The polyester added with the cotton gives it a lovely drape.
  • I think Comfy Cotton Blend is really nice for hats, accessories and garments….I have made a sleeveless cardigan with it, which I love!! Paid pattern available here.

In SummaryΒ :

  • Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend is one of my go to yarns, that I will continue to buy for a lot of different projects I make to sell in my Madeit Store and at the market I attend.
  • I love the variegated colours and I think they suit a big variety of projects.
