Crochet a cotton yarn, as we did earlier, for a blanket or throw blanket for the summer.
We also took the time to make some cotton yarn balls, and crochet the cuffs for the blanket.
We found this yarn in our stash and it’s so easy to make that we’ll be doing it again for our second summer.
Here’s the tutorial, as well as our handy crochet card for a cotton crochet kit.
A quick note: We used the same yarn that we used for the first cotton yarn project, which is called cotton gin, and that yarn is really lovely.
We think you’ll find that the yarn is more forgiving than our original cotton gin yarn, which has a little more stretch.
To make the cotton gin blanket, you’ll need two skeins of the cotton yarn and two skein of the cuffed yarn.
Make sure you get your skein with the first color of the blanket to get the look you want.
The cotton gin is super-washable, so wash it as often as you want, and be sure to iron it well.
The cuffs are made in two parts: the cowl and the cuff.
To crochet the blanket, make a row of double crochet and join them to form a ring.
When you finish the double crochet, you should now have a long row of ch-2tog, which can be worked in the round, or in the middle of a round.
In the crescent shape, work a single crochet into the end of the round.
After the round has completed, you can turn the round around and work a second single crochet, which will join the two pieces together.
Now, to make the corset, you will make one double crochet into a ring, making a triangle.
This will join them together, so you will have two layers of corset.
When the first round of the row is complete, you are done with your cotton gin corset!
We made a little tutorial on how to crochet cuffs to give you a better idea of how to make a cotton gin cotton corset blanket.
