This yarn is a bit strange, it has some tinsel-sparkly bits spun into the wool, but it’s beautiful.
Worried that the tinsel would be itchy against my skin I chose a shawl pattern. It is free and was perfect to showcase the color changes!
- Omitted increases on the WS
- I wanted thicker stripes along the outer edge. To achieve this, after finishing the 2nd skein, I alternated between 2 skeins i.e. 3rd with 4th skeins and 5th with 6th skeins (following the same color changes) to prolong the color.
- Instead of kerchief size, I kept knitting until most of the yarn was used up. It's now a generous scarf size.
- Used a 10mm crochet hook to cast off. I find this cast off method easier to get a loose tension.
