Summer reigns supreme when warm temperatures take over, the beaches open, and school lets out for fun in the sun. As knitters and crocheters though, it can be tough to satisfy our year-round desire to knit and crochet—warm weather and wool don’t mix well!
Enter Cotton Supreme and Cotton Supreme Batik from Universal Yarn—a luscious worsted weight machine washable cotton available in more than 30 solid and self-striping shades. Cotton Supreme is wonderfully soft to the touch—perfect for year-round wear next to the skin—and works up quickly to create stylish sweaters, tanks, and accessories.
Based on the popularity of our first Cotton Supreme book, we teamed up with designer extraordinaire Michele Wilcox to create a diverse selection of stuffed toys and wearables paired with fun and funky appliqué. Work the garment projects as presented in these pages—pairing summer tanks and accessories with flower and fruit appliqué—or work the appliqué on their own and pin them to your favorite jacket, hat, or sweater.
Warm weather is coming again soon—grab your needles and knit on with Cotton Supreme to create sumptuously soft, warm-weather knits in style!
