We adored Erin’s Easy Peasy Baby Jacket by Churchmouse Classics and thought it would be the perfect pattern to test drive our new Berroco “Comfort” yarn. Comfort is a worsted weight, machine washable, acrylic yarn. And, it’s a great value at 210 yards for $6.25. I had about half of the second ball left on this project.
I must confess, I was amazed at the soft hand and “smoosh” quality of this yarn. It is absolutely lovely, has a nice twist, and comes in terrific colors. I machine washed the store sample using a lingerie bag and partially dried it on low heat. I laid it out (and gave it a little "finger blocking") to completely dry. It still looks great.
As far as knitting the sweater goes, I found that the yarn tends to twist back on itself. Using the yarn from the outside, rather than the center pull, helped quite a bit.
Come in and smoosh the Easy Peasy. You’ll love it!
