Ivory Ocean Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern & Yarn Review

Weeks ago Wool And The Gang sent me some skeins of their Shiny Happy Cotton yarn, and it was love it first sight, touch and stitch!

Frequently I've worked with cotton yarn when designing (especially hats and booties!), which made me extra keen to see how this yarn stacked up against some of my usual favourites. 

These are only some of the colours available  but as you can already see, the colours are very elegant and rich which would make any project pop!

Here are some of my thoughts about this yarn in particular:
  • Without a doubt in my mind, this yarn is by far the softest and smoothest cotton yarn I have ever worked with. The stitch definition I achieved while working with this (100% Peruvian pima) cotton is incredible. I would highly recommend you try it out at least once if you're a 'cotton' junkie like myself... Trust me, you'll never want to go back!
  • Despite being as soft as marshmallow, this yarn has a luxurious thickness and warmth to it. I'd be extremely keen to try crocheting a scarf with this Shiny Happy Cotton. Just imagine how cosy that would be?
  • Each skein is over a 150 yards in length, meaning you can easily crochet a headband or hat and still have some yarn left over!
So without further ado, here is my latest pattern for an adorable beanie which features this lovely yarn seen above!
