I would really like to knit up the Peapod Baby Set for a friend of mine who’s expecting her first child. The pattern calls for Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere (85% cotton & 15% cashmere) and I’m wondering if I could get any recommendations on other yarns that might work well.
The gauge is listed as 22 sts & 30 rows = 4"in St st
I’ve seen that this particular yarn is discontinued and is still priced around $8 per ball. I’m also concerned about the wear and tear factor since this will be for a baby. I read this review and I think I’d like something that doesn’t pill or surface blur.
Anything baby-friendly that could possibly be machine washable and work well with this adorable pattern?
EDIT: I just found some Moda Dea Baby Talk at AC Moore and I think it might work. Has anyone used this before?
