question(s) about knitting cotton socks

577 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Katherine in KY
For our church fundraising auction, I donated a pair of hand-knit socks. The man who won the bid doesn't like wool, which is what I usually use, and has requested lightweight green socks made out of cotton instead. I'm willing to accommodate him if I can. I wonder, though, will cotton yarn feel soft enough? Is it stretchy enough? Do I need to use a different pattern from my basic wool sock pattern? Does anyone have a men's sock pattern that they think is great?

What do you knitters think?

You can find some pretty decent yarn made out of bamboo, that is soft as can be, though a little pricey. Most local yarn stores carry it. Susan
