Adding Drape to Cotton Yarn

When I think drape I think silk, SeaCell, or bamboo. I don't think cotton, especially the smooth, sorta stiff mercerized cotton yarn that's ubiquitous in spring and summer knits.

But I'm thinking again because Kristin Ohmdahl and Eunny Jang, hosts of Knitting Daily TV, are here to show us all how to knit with cotton and get the drape we want. With the right shaping and pattern, you can get a great result.

Here is a great video clip from Knitting Daily showing many ways to incorporate drape while using your cotton yarns!

Cotton Classic Dairy Maid Top

Cotton Classic Bianca Cardigan

Cotton Classic Lite Tokyo Vest

These are some examples of the many projects showing techniques to incorporate drape in your knit and crochet projects.
