Regia Cotton

This is Regia Cotton Java Color (yes USA spelling). Colourway I used is 1176. 400m per 100gm

It is 41% wool, 34% cotton and 25% nylon. It weighs 46gms.

I used 80sts. I knit 18 rows in 1x1 rib using 2mm needles and then 70 rows using 2.25mm. I did the heel and then knit 70 rows. I started to decrease on row 71 and then on row 74 until row 96. Knit one more row and cast off. 97 rows in total after heel. I got approx 36s x 48r per 10cm.

I used one long circular needle using Magic Loop method.

If you look below you can see why I prefer the Sherman Heel, with my minor adjustments.
