Which Yarn to use for crochet a summer vest?
Cotton yarn: Oh well, cotton or a plant base fiber content yarn is my top pick for hot weather because it feels really nice on your skin, almost a second-skin-like garment that you absolutely love it., sometimes you won’t feel they exist lol. I am kidding.
Polyester or wool yarn: Both of them will work just fine as well, but they won’t give a beautiful drape like cotton; they still provide pretty good outcomes and look great for themselves.
