I'm dying to knit the "Picovoli" top with some organic cotton yarn I have around.

This is a great issue! I love the cardigan and Picovoli and Alice (the fair isle sweater). The scarf is a great idea, but just not for me:)

A note about the Sesame cardigan for anyone making it using the recommended yarn: I'm pretty certain you would need to hold two strands together, as Rowan Wool Cotton is pretty tiny (I just used it for a Knitty pattern). This pattern doesn't SAY to use two strands, but I think you would need to in order to get the gauge.

 Normally, ( to me) Magknits patterns are hit-or- miss.  I really like the scarf and the cardigan. My mom likes the wrap/shawl and the Alice sweater.


 About the cardigan, at http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-woolcotton.htm they say that the gauge for Wool Cotton is 5.5 - 6 stitches per inch( 22 - 24 stitches for 4 inches) and magnkits says 21 stitches. I don't think ou would have to double it.

ysolda, what gauge are you getting?

Actually I just checked knitty and the gauge on Spring Fling is 24 sts/4in. I was thinking it was closer to 28 sts. Still seems like 21sts/4in would be kinda....holey. Maybe not.
