I am a beginner at knitting. This looks doable. Please answer a question....or two....So how does one of the strands not get knitted in the round if the other does? Are both of the yarns bulky? Thank you for your blog and for sharing this "non-pattern" ;-)Sincerely, Shirley
Hi Shirley...Okay for one of them I used one strand of the neon green WORSTED WEIGHT mixed with this funky weird thin strand that had all sorts of different textures and things going on with it. I just held both those strands together and knitted them together. That one I did on straight needles and then I just joined the ends to make the cowl. Okay now the second one.....I started out with one strand of the same neon green yarn and held it together with the funky yarn. When I ran out of the funky yarn, I just added a second strand of the worsted weight neon green so I was always knitting with two strands of yarn at the same time. NO switching on and off between yarns. Let me see if I can find you a link or a tutorial to how I added the yarns to the project....it's very easy.
Shirley I can't find a video on line showing how I do it. I'm still looking though.
Shirley I found a good video that shows how I add yarn to my projects. http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=adding%20yarn%20to%20a%20knitting%20project%20by%20knitting%20with%20two%20yarns&qs=n&form=QBVR&pq=adding%20yarn%20to%20a%20knitting%20project%20by%20knitting%20with%20two%20yarns&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk=#view=detail&mid=69E8FAC60AAAA9A7212269E8FAC60AAAA9A72122
Thank you :-) I misunderstood what you were saying. I thought you were saying to work one strand in the round and one flat at the same time. I now understand that you made two cowls one in the round and one flat. Is my face red....:-)As soon as I finish my granddaughters infinity scarf I will be making this. Once more, thank you. Shirley
Good Shirley.....It's a great way to use the funky wierd yarn by mixing it in with the plainer stuff. :)
