In the beginning of the summer I went on a kick knitting with cotton. I have knit almost exlusively with wool since I started, with the exception of a few dishcloths.
This was knit with what has been my favorite cotton yarn to date: Knitting Fever's Intermezzo DK.
I love the lace bib of this pattern, and the details of the purl buttons. It is an A-line shaped top, which is comfortable, but if I were going to make another version of this, I would definitely make the waist more fitted.
I'm not sure if I'm sold on knitting with cotton. The summer sweaters are so heavy that I don't get much use from them; they also are difficult for me to wash without a washing machine. I will be knitting some more of them, but I can't wait to get back to knitting with wool! And it's that time of year.
Pattern: Sleeveless Tuxedo Shirt, Interweave Knits Summer 2007
Yarn: Knitting Fever Intermezzo DK, 4 balls
Completed: July, 2008
Modifications: Knit 8 rows of garter stitch at the bottom of the sweater to prevent the reverse stockinette from rolling inward.
