Seaming cotton sweater

Im working on my first cotton project. I had heard that you can machine seam cotton. Is that true?

Uhh… I suppose, but I wouldn’t machine seam anything. If it’s stockinette the best and nicest looking seam is done with mattress stitch.

I do lots of projects in cotton. I tuck the thread in and hand stitch with matching thread sometimes:cool:

The sweater I am referring to is the Ruffled Cardigan from the Winter 2009/10 issue of Knit Simple. The yarn I am using is really, really soft 75% cotton, 25% acrylic. Thanks!
