Practice makes perfect! I think K2tog are a little harder with the cotton yarns than others--it doesn't "give" as much.

I agree that the Handicrafter Cotton is nicer than the Sugar 'n Cream. Seems to have more of a "sheen" to it, and is easier to work with. I crocheted a bathroom set with it recently. It would have been more difficult with the other yarn.


Now, I'm making a larger rug with the same yarn, using 2 strands together throughout.
