My Experiences Crocheting and Knitting With Sprout Organic Cotton Yarn by Classic Elite — So far, I’ve really enjoyed crafting with Sprout organic cotton yarn by Classic Elite. This yarn comes in a beautiful color palette with so many lovely colors that I had a hard time deciding which ones to buy. I was thrilled with all 5 of the colors I bought, and I found that they work well together in various projects.

Most of the projects I made with the yarn turned out beautifully. I had success making scarves, placemats and wine bottle covers with this yarn.

I did have one scarf project flop because the yarn ended up being too heavy for the project I had in mind — which happens often with cotton yarn; it isn’t unique to this particular cotton. In cases where Sprout is too heavy, be aware that Classic Elite has a lighter weight yarn called “Seedling” that would probably be workable instead. In hindsight, I wish I had tried Seedling too; I haven’t had a chance to work with it yet. But I would bet money that I’d prefer Seedling over Sprout for many different knitting and crochet projects.

Other Crochet Projects Where I Used Classic Elite’s Sprout Yarn

 I used Sprout yarn to crochet Christmas wreath #3 pictured above.

I used Sprout yarn to crochet Christmas wreath #3 pictured above.

I crocheted this Christmas wreath ornament (free crochet pattern available) bunches of different times. I used Sprout Yarn in one of my samples. You can read more about the results of that experiment here: 5 Ways to Crochet a Christmas Wreath.

I designed and crocheted a placemat that was used as a photo prop on the cover of a cook book. The pattern incorporated Sprout along with another organic cotton that has since been discontinued. I plan to make that crochet pattern available eventually, but I’ll need to re-work it with different yarns before I do. But, I can say with certainty that this yarn makes lovely placemats.

So there you have it: That’s what I know about Sprout organic cotton yarn by Classic Elite. I highly recommend this yarn for both knitting and crocheting.
