Plassard Coton-Lin

Are any of you using a bulkier fiber?

I'm a vegan knitter, so I was thinking of using plassard's coton-lin Coton-lin's gauge is 22 sts over 4" on size 6 needles. Do any of you think that the fabric will be too dense? I was hoping to find a nice linen or linen blend for the pullover. Cotton is nice, but I haven't knit a garment in linen yet and it just seems right for this project.

Have any of you ever used this yarn? Any suggestions?

I'm really excited about this KAL. I hope to order yarn soon and get started!

Nice to meet ya!

Sorry if the link doesn't take you directly to the coton-lin on yarndex. I don't know what the deal is.


  • i think i'm going to use a yarn with a different gauge as well. i think the main issue is drape. knit a swatch and see if the fabric is one that you like and drapes nicely. you may have to knit a larger swatch than normal to get the proper impression of the yarn.

  • Now that i've looked around more, i think i may go with Rowan's 4 ply cotton. I'll use bloom and orchid for my colors. My main worry is the drape and coton-lin is pricey to play around with.

    I'll just have to find another project for the coton-lin. :)
