Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme

Update, January 2014: Frogged to make into pet blankets.

This yarn is very soft and was nice to work with but it stretched so much (even more than I’d expect from cotton) that the cardigan is now a sack. The garter band you see in the photo was originally right under my bust! It has also pilled a lot in just a couple of wearings, so I feel the yarn let me down, and I will only be wearing this around the house.

As far as the pattern goes, however, I’m very happy! And tempted to knit it again in a wool yarn…

This project was shown in my video podcast Gentle Ribbing as I worked on it - it first featured in episode 19.
