I’m hoping to start working on a sweater and I’d like to make it out of a cotton blend (cotton-ease, to be exact). Ideally, it would have cables, but now that I’m reading some patterns and gathering ideas, I’m realizing that a lot of cable patterns recommend wool, only. They claim that cables will stand out better in wool than other fibers.
While knitting with cotton-ease, it seems like any shapes or patterns I put in are very bold and have a great “pop”, but does this shape come out in the wash? What’s your take on using cotton for designs and cables?
