Scheepjes Catona cotton yarn in yarn bowl with jewel-toned colors and crochet hook for Crisscross Cushion Cover crochet pattern by Susan Carlson | Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

Can't Stay Away from Catona

Since becoming a Scheepjes blogger and having the chance to work with their wide range of yarns (including the new "secret" ones--shhhh), one of my favorite go-to cottons is Scheepjes *Catona. You can read more about my thoughts on this yarn here. But, to be brief--it has the most amazing color range, a lovely sheen, crisp stitch definition, affordable pricing, and a soft hand. Can it get any better than that? 

Take a peek at some projects I've made using this fabulously colorful mercerized cotton:

So, what have I been doing recently with this fun and colorful yarn? Let me show you a wee peek...

The colors available with *Catona are simply delicious with 106 shades available! With this design, I stepped out of my frequented color palette a bit, but I'm loving them. And what I'm making will look pretty great in almost any room of my house.



If you're interested in getting your hooks in these particular colors, they are 128, 172, 179, 212, 240, 242, 258, 391, 392, 396, 395 and 399. They come in 25g and 50g balls, so if you have a small project where you want to use lots of colors these are just perfect! Buy them at Deramores *here or Wool Warehouse *here. They are only $1.24/.99£ each.

You may have come across some Catona if you've been following the Scheepjes Hygge CAL going on right now because it's the brilliant colors used for the embroiderty, bobbles and surface crochet. Did I say brilliant colors already?

A beautiful mix of texture, color, surface crochet and cross stitch embroidery are used here. Seriously!! Amaze-balls, huh? It was designed by the ridiculously talented Kirsten Ballering of HaakMaarRaak.

You can find all of the information you need to get started here and grab your kits from Wool Warehouse *here or Deramore's *here. Even if you are in the US, they ship speedy quick, so you can get started on your shawl right away! And if you are intimidated--don't be, because the brilliant Esther of It's all in a Nutshell is making videos of each week's portion.

If you missed the release of my newest pattern yesterday using Scheepjes Colour Crafter, stop by my Etsy shop here for details. It's a fun-filled, colorful and wildly-textured blanket!)
