I love, love, love, the new yarn called Woolike at Michaels Store. It is so soft and really drapes nicely. When you knit with it you don’t have to rewind the skein. Take the strand out of the middle and it feeds nicely while knitting. I decided to try some tuck stitch patterns on my electronic bulky to see if anything looked good on both sides. I did several of the patterns in the book but I like this one a lot. It looks good on both sides. It is pattern 129. If you use the tuck stitch side you will see more loops of texture. The edge stitches look nice and roll a little but that is a good thing with this scarf. I knitted 560 rows to get approximately 50 inches. Then I connected the beginning to the end to make a circle. To put it on, I folded the scarf in half and put around my neck. Then I took the bottom part and turned it like a figure eight and put that loop over my head. It feels wonderful and I think it looks a lot like the Bulky cowls people like without all the “bulk”.
Here are the directions for needle set up in my drop box
By the way, the yarn Woolike is on sale for $2.00 a skein at Michaels this week. No, I don’t work for them. 🙂
