Like it’s big sibling, Modern Cotton DK is a blend of 60% Pima cotton and 40% Modal rayon. It’s made up of 5 plies of 2-strands each (as opposed to Modern Cotton’s 8 plies). It has a soft hand and fantastic drape, same as Modern Cotton—it just knits up at a tighter gauge. This swatch was knit on US size 4 (3.5 mm), though our recommended gauge calls for a US size 5 (3.75 mm). As always, it’s important to swatch when working with a new-to-you yarn.
Berroco Modern Cotton and Modern Cotton DK make up the projects in Berroco Portfolio Volume 3, now available online and in print at your LYS. These patterns demonstrate the range of this yarn—it can do beautiful traditional lace, gorgeous texture, and fluid stockinette stitch.
