The “More Paintbox Knits” tank top pattern called for worsted weight cotton and size 6 needles.
I wanted something a little “lighter” in texture so I used a cone of organic cotton foxfiber I had (29 wpi) that was a little smaller than DK weight and size 4 needles. I wanted a size 2T and with that change in yarn and needles, found knitting a 4T gave me just what I was after. It turned out VERY soft.
The pattern is from “More Paintbox Knits”
I also did a small blanket last week, and this teddy bear that is yet to be stuffed. The teddy is from Blue Sky Organic Cotton. While I love the softness of this yarn, it breaks so easily that it’s giving me a little trouble where you end off and bind the stitches by pulling the yarn through. If I use this for toys again I would likely run a reinforcing thread along the last row before ending off.
