100% cotton = great summer knits
04/11/2017                       #704
We love cotton yarn for summer knits, and these knitting patterns were made for our brand-new 100% cotton yarn.

Plant-fibers are generally the go-to for summer knitting, and none are more well known or versatile than cotton. However, cotton yarns tend to be a bit shiny, more suited to bright bold color palettes. 

Our brand new Berroco Pima 100™ is a 100% Pima cotton yarn, but it's in a matte finish—meaning it's not shiny at all. Instead, it has a smooth look and feel, perfect for these great beach-inspired knitting patterns, all found in Booklet #385 Berroco Pima 100!

Lourdes combines the smooth hand of Berroco Pima 100 with a broomstick lace–inspired stitch worked in rows on the front and back. Four to six hanks of 8412 Phlox are all you need to knit this sweet tee.
Matte yarns are great for bold stripes, as demonstrated in Marquita. The main stripes are worked with 3–4 hanks of 8470 Goat's Beard (that's the dark gray) and 8406 Stone Crop, with 1–2 hanks of 8419 Dianthus for the highlight stripes.
Berroco Pima 100 is great for simple accessories like Trista, a side-to-side shawl knit with two hanks of 8430 Acorn.
Larue is the ideal knitting project for anyone who enjoys multiple ways to wear a project. This short-sleeved tee features an easy and attractive stitch pattern with a deep neck on one side, or a simple stockinette scoop neck on the other. Shown in four to seven hanks of 8452 Lavender.
Nice and easy to knit, Cosette is just as easy to wear with anything. Knit side to side with curved dolphin hems, this tee takes just four to seven hanks of 8431 Chrysanthemum.
The last project in the book is Aliisa, a long, relaxed cardigan with deep ribbed hems and raglan sleeves. Knit this with seven to ten hanks of 8403 Wisteria.
