I’ve taken a long hiatus from knitting, and I came across a boys’ sweater that I just have to make. I’ve been officially bitten by the knitting bug! Its calls for 10 balls of Rowan all season’s cotton. That would be $80 for a 6 year old’s sweater! Ridiculous. And obviously I know I could find any brand X in worsted weight and make sure I have enough yardage, but the Rowan all seasons cotton is twisted differently than any of the cotton blends on knitpicks and I realllllyyyy like it (take a look: http://cdn.deramores.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/u/n/untitled_shoot-014_7_9.jpg). More plys perhaps? In any case it LOOKS different.
So what I am really asking here is if anyone knows not only how to find a similar cotton blend substitute but one with similar plys and twists? Too tall an order? I hope not, and one of you lovely ladies has an easy answer…lol
