I found a pattern for my next project and purchased the yarn in Feb. I starting knitting a swatch last night and I hate the yarn. It splits and snags and I just don’t like it. I’ve tried to find yarn with the same gauge
19sts=4", 26 rows=4" in St st
to replace it but so far I haven’t found one. I’d like to make this shell in cotton since I’m in Florida and it’s hot but everything I see comes close but no cigar. I’ve been reading reviews about cotton yarn and it seems that splitting is a problem with the yarn. I tried knitting with Cleo Egyptian Cotton and it doesn’t split nearly as much as the other yarn but I don’t know if they even make this stuff much less what’s the gauge.
What do you do in this situation?
