I need advice on what yarn to use

My favorite sweaters are my two cotton sweaters. They are knit of chunky cotton yarn, and are a very simple design. However, I can’t find any more like them, and as they are several years old, they are slightly too small (though part of me is thrilled to know that I own two shirts that have too short of sleeves). The obvious solution: knit some!

I would like some advice on some good chunky/super chunky 100% cotton yarn to use. I’d like to make a couple of sweaters, and try out a couple of different yarns. Thanks in advance for your help!

spinnaker from knitpicks is super bulky weights-would make a nice thick sweater, and they also have crayon which they list as dk wieght. both look fluffy soft

Thank you very much for the suggestions - they do look soft and fluffy. Not QUITE what I’m looking for, unfortunately… normally “soft and fluffy” is pretty much my yarn criteria, but for this project I want something… less fluffy. More like the yarn my grandma uses to make washcloths, only thicker.

However, I’m starting to think I need socks or something out of spinnaker. :slight_smile:

check out http://yarn.com/
they have lots more options for cotton and cotton blends

Yay, thank you thank you!!! There are several yarns on there which look like exactly what I want. :slight_smile:
