Review:

I purchased Berroco Pure Pima Yarn in hopes of using it for a tank top. I’ve knitted with cotton before for summer garments and have been disappointed after a couple wears. I’m not sure why I though this yarn would be different.

Don’t get me wrong. I think Berroco Pure Pima Yarn is a great cotton yarn. When I knitted my swatch, I used a size 1 US needle and the resulting stockinette and seed stitch were lovely. I didn’t care so much for the 1 by 1 ribbing though.

I think this yarn would be great for wash clothes and dish clothes. I could also see it used for a baby blanket if it wasn’t knit in stockinette but with a more textured stitch like seed or moss stitch.
