A New Cast On, Another Nuuk Sweater

Early this morning I casted on another Nuuk Sweater using a new to me yarn I picked up at Joann called  K+C Element. I enjoy trying new and different yarns, even those yarns from big box stores.

From Joann’s Website:  This yarn is made using cotton and acrylic. It is soft, comfortable and a durable yarn. It is great for clothing such as sweaters and ponchos, home decor like pillows and blankets and accessories like hats and scarves. Content: 90% Cotton and 10% Acrylic Suggested Needle  Size: US 8/5mm 19STS 4"x4" 25RUS I/9 - 5.5mm 14SC 4"-4" 18R

I made good progress this morning and really love how the knitted gray colored fabric is looking. It feels very light and I think it’s going to be perfect for the hot summers here in Phoenix.

I think this sweater pattern is soon to become an all time favorite.  The simply construction and design is so very versatile, and perfect for any type of worsted weight yarn.  I am planning to knit a few more in cotton and excited to have something comfortable to wear with shorts or jeans.

Until next time, be creative!
