I've had this cotton yarn on hand for a few years now.  I bought it when I knew nothing about yarn and it was the best I could find to match my nieces coat. I was never thrilled with how my toque turned out since it had no stretch. I thought about wash clothes or something similar but was never motivated (boring)
I had a brilliant idea the other day that I could make my daughter a bathing suit. She adores swimming so it was perfect. I scoured the internet for a pattern since this was out of my comfort zone but to my luck nothing was found (not even a paid one) Any thing i did find was for a 2 piece and since she's an active kid I wanted it to be a single piece, with ties to accommodate a growing girl since there is no elasticity in cotton.

Going to test it out in the bathtub this week and see how much it stretches out once wet.
