Berroco Modern Cotton

$ 10.99

Delectably soft with scrumptious colors, in a versatile worsted weight, Berroco's Modern Cotton is great for knitting or crocheting cardigans, scarves and baby blankets. 

Saurey is one of our favorite baby blankets from the Berroco Design Team. The easy lace pattern knits up quickly on US 7 (4.5mm) circular needles to a generous size of 24 x 36 inches (61 x 91cm). You'll need 3 skeins of Modern Cotton. The free pattern is available on ravelry.com.

We also love the ease and comfort of the Baltica Cardigan by Alexis Winslow. The simple pattern on a stockinette background uses 6-8 skeins of Modern Cotton for finished sizes of 41-61 inches (104-155cm) and US 5 & 7 (3.75-4.5mm) circular needles. The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.

Blanket of Joy Blanket by Kay Gardiner

We are loving what Kay Gardiner of Modern Daily Knitting said about knitting for babies:

Babies come along, and they need knitterly recognition, and they need it now. If you don’t get your baby blanket into that baby’s life right quick, you run the risk of losing Most Favored Blankie status to a lesser blanket. I always want to be in the running for Most Favored Blankie, so when a baby arrives in my family, I drop everything and GO.

 

We knit our gender-neutral blanket with 1 skein each of 7 colors of Berroco Modern Cotton: "Piper", Foliage", Coast", "Hope", "Dune", "College Hill" and "Bluffs".  Or get creative and choose your own palette from the myriad colors in this collection. The pattern is available on Ravelry.
