12+ Best Coboo Yarn Crochet Patterns for Summer

Got extra Coboo Yarn looking for the perfect crochet pattern to use it? Search no more, this post compiles the best Coboo yarn crochet patterns to make finding your next project a breeze. 

Summer is my favorite time of the year to make things. I love working with lightweight yarn, especially natural fibers! Though it takes longer to work up, I love how simple stitches like single crochet and double crochet stitches still produce a nice drape without the density when using thinner yarn. More intricate and involved stitch patterns like lace, shells, cables, etc are well defined without big gaps too.

What is Coboo yarn?

Coboo yarn has become wildly popular in the yarnisphere as one of the best summer yarn to crochet with. It is a light weight bamboo-cotton blend yarn from Lion Brand Yarn. This yarn is a great option for summer tops with generous yardage and at a great price point. Bamboo yarn is naturally very soft, giving it a nice smooth touch to the skin and producing beautiful drape. Cotton yarn is known to be the best yarn for warm weather and general wear and tear because of its ability to absorb moisture. With Lion Brand Coboo yarn you get the best of both worlds!

Coboo yarn is definitely a summer yarn.  It is perfect blend of nature’s finest plant-based fibers and innovative eco-friendly design. With its plush softness and green credentials, Coboo yarn is the perfect choice for warm weather garments.

Alternatives to Coboo Yarn

Don’t have enough Coboo Yarn for these projects? No worries! The good thing is, you absolutely do not need Coboo to make these patterns. You would only need a similar weight yarn to make these.

Coboo is quite similar to two other lines from Lion Brand yarn: Truboo yarn and Nuboo yarn (discontinued).

Truboo is a lightweight yarn and 100% rayan from bamboo.  I have designed with both Coboo and Truboo and must say that they are very similar indeed. However, if you feel the fibres carefully and observe how they are worked up, you will notice that Coboo is a little more stiff. This is because of the cotton properties in the yarn making is better for absorption. 

Truboo, as you might have guessed is smoother with insane drape. I found that Truboo creates a fabric that is glossier and heavier. 

Lion Brand Yarn also came out with a 24/7 Cotton DK. This yarn is 100% cotton, so on the other spectrum of Coboo in comparison to Truboo. Basically is 24/7 cotton dk and Truboo had a baby, it would be Coboo. haha I personally really like 24/7 Cotton DK! It works into light fabric with beautiful stitch definition. 

Lastly, outside of the Lion Bran Yarn family, I would recommend Rico Baby cotton soft dk. I used this yarn for my Siffleur Box Top and I must say though it is a 100% cotton yarn, it is very soft much like Coboo. This yarn has has great airflow, absorbent, and light.
