This is a collection of free crochet patterns using cotton yarn. Cotton yarn for crochet is a practical choice because of its versatility and durability.

Using cotton yarn for crochet is a popular choice and with good reason. For starters, you can use cotton yarn for various projects such as shawls and wraps, kitchen towels, and area rugs. There aren’t very many projects that you can’t use cotton yarn for.
