knitting with cotton
I'm new to the website. How wondrous! Those videos, especially with the audio, are amazing! So helpful, especially to a newbie like myself.
Question about knitting a sweater with 100% cotton. I've been told that it stretches (not sure if length or width or both) and I should take that into account when I am knitting. How? Should I use a needle 1 or 2 sizes smaller? Make it a size smaller than it would ordinarily be in wool? Hang a big swatch with weights for a couple of days to see how it stretches? Any help much appreciated!
