It's used for anything and everything, but makes great pot holders, wash clothes and stuff.

What exactly are you referring to when you say crochet cotton? Just normal cotton yarn (worsted weight or thereabouts), or the really thin cotton thread stuff? The thicker stuff is used for whatever, washcloths, potholders, etc, while the thinner stuff is usually used for doilies, tablecloths, or anything that requires the use of very thin yarn.

Hope that helps.

I use thin cotton yarn to make lace.

I like to use cotton, because it dyes easily.

I like to use DK cottons to make up baby items (such as washclothes and hats) I find Cotton a safer material to gift other peoples babies. I have used smaller cottons to make up finer items such as a bed doll gown.
I guess the use of cotton may be different in some countries, here in Australia its not the easiest Fiber to find (100% cotton that is). I was looking for Cotton to make up a washcloth set for a baby shower, just this week, and when I asked the LYS about DK cotton she wanted to know why I wanted it.... I told her to make baby washclothes and she told me not to waste my time Sad
I would recommend getting a skein and trying it out - you will never know if its your type of fiber until you try it Smiley
Good luck

I use the Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn for toys as well - I make cupcakes out of it. It's very nice to crochet with and would be good for smallish Amigurumi patterns probably. Plus it's cheap and has pretty colors, if you like pastels.
