I used some absolutely stunning Lion Brand24/7 Cotton to crochet The Bayswater Top, and it was a dream to work with (the cotton is so gorgeous!). The Yarn is so smooth, and the stitch definition is unreal.

24/7 Cotton® is a worsted-weight, mercerized 100% natural fiber yarn. The mercerization process gives the yarn incredible color and sheen which will last through multiple wash cycles. Choose from a variety of 24 colors, which will be perfect for making fashion garments, home décor, bath and kitchen accessories, and items for babies and children.
