I work almost exclusively with cotton/cotton blends (most recycled thrift sweaters) and I design sweaters to be narrower and a bit longer from the get go as they grow in width, shrink in length when worn. (No elasticity to pull back horizontally.) I actually DO hang cottons to force them to lengthen and force the fibers to pull in horiz (to reduce the width).

Keeping to the knitting basics
