Our new spring yarn, Modern Cotton, was featured in Booklet #345 - a collection of knits for babies and kids. Modern Cotton is a great choice for kids projects because it is machine washable and easy to care for, but with its bright and beautiful color palette, it is also ideal for women's garments. Check out this week's KnitBits for a free summer top that Norah designed using Modern Cotton.
