The third installment of Berroco's Portfolio book series celebrates their Modern Cotton lines, both hard wearing and machine washable, made of cotton blended with viscose for drape. The popular light-worsted weight Berroco Modern Cotton (20st) is featured in six patterns and is carried in both Urban Yarns stores as well as online.
Its little sibling Modern Cotton DK (23st) is in the other eight patterns, and is not yet carried by Urban Yarns. It is easily substituted with DK cottons Rowan Summerlite DK (22st), Blue Sky Fibers Skinny Cotton (22st), or try Juniper Moon Zooey (22st) for some soft texture. Always do a gauge swatch for fitted garments, whether substituting yarn or not! In the case of non-fitted garments like shawls and wraps, Berroco Modern Cotton (20st) can be substituted directly (with a corresponding increase in needle size) and will result in slightly larger finished pieces.
