I am wondering if any of you can tell me what the capital letters after the fabric selection mean?

For example: sweater knit (CO)

What does the CO mean?

I have seen others as well (PES, PA, CV, EA, VW)
I have looked through the magazines and can't seem to be able to find a key anywhere

Help!

It's the type of fabric. CO is cotton from memory.

eta - EA is elastane as well - it's not on the ottobre chart, I don't know what VW is though - what issue and style no and I'll see if I can figure it out?

What does the description from the photos say? I haven't got that copy, and its too small on the computer to read. From what I could see it looks like a long sleeve top so maybe its like merino, or a wool type knit?

The material for the top is labelled as viscose/wool knit - so I can see where the VW comes from...
But why do they need definitions (such as VW), when they just write the whole name of the fabric anyway?

I'm with Kiley - the letters were probably just transposed. The abbreviations are international textile standard so I guess it's meant to be more easily understood. They don't always specify in words the type of fibre that the fabric should be made from - ie they might write "printed sweater knit" (CO/EA) so they recommend for you to use a cotton knit with some elastane content, without the abbreviation it could mean a polyester (ick) or a straight cotton (which might not have the same recovery). I guess too part of the joy of sewing is we can completely ignore the instructions if we want!
