When knitting with multiple types of yarn, there are two things you need to keep in mind. First, make sure the gauge stays the same, as seen in this video, by combining two strands of the cotton yarn. Secondly, since the fibers of the material are different and different fabrics react differently to heat, make sure you take extra care when washing the garment. Nonetheless, the finished product of working with two types of yarn is always gorgeous, because you can combine multiple textures and even different stitches within the same knitting pattern.
