Cotton yarns are much easier to work with on metal needles/hooks. It tends to get caught on the tackier suface of wood and bamboo.
This Beautiful sweater is one example, made with Cotton Fine yarn from Brown Sheep Company. You can get this pattern, High Tide by Chris Bylsma, here at the Yarn Outlet. If you need a little help with making a sweater, creating the fade color effect, set in sleeves or the beautiful wave edging consider taking the class.
