Summer is finally here & the sun is shining! What a perfect time to release my new summer garment pattern & have a Name Contest! Even better yet - Ice Yarns will give away an entire pack of their Baby Summer yarn (the yarn I used on this pattern) to the winner of the Name Contest!!! Free Pattern + Free Yarn = LOVE!!!
Let me tell you about the yarn I chose to use for my design.
Baby Summer by Ice Yarns
Fiber Content : 60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic
Needle Size : 3 mm. / US 3
Weight : 50 gr. / 1.76 oz. per ball

Baby Summer yarn is FANTASTIC!! It has the smooth, non-fuzzy look of cotton, but it also has an amazing sheen & drape that it is perfect for summer garments. The yarn glides over the hook with fluid ease that makes it wonderful to work with. The colors are also fantastic - 26 colors ranging from lights to brights! Also, because the yarn is an acrylic blended with cotton, it make the yarn less dense than 100% cotton yarns, so it has a lighter feel to the overall crochet item!!
