Sometimes simple is better…….

I tripped upon this yarn and love at first sight. I loved the colouring of the “nubs”.
I sampled this and that stitch, but not really happy with any of them. Crochet was troublesome. Then, I tried plain ordinary garter stitch. It looked best, no pooling of the coloured nubs. It felt nice to the hand even though the label said MIxed Fibre, Polyester acrylic, it felt somewhat like chenille.

Method:
8mm needles and a cast on of 20 stitches. Width is 6 1/2 ” wide and 2 balls long.
Garter stitch every row.

A little TIP. I knit through the back loop of the knit stitch. It gives the stitch a little twist and holds its’ shape better.

So far, it’s looking like a scarf, but I’m not done yet. 🙂

A scarf it became. 2 balls, 50 gm each made a 60″ scarf with 4 in of yarn leftover.
It looks great on a black coat or sweater.
