Maybe It Was a Bad Idea... TKA 夢幻麻花圍巾進度


I finished about 7" of Illusions Cable Scarf (one of the TKA projects, designed by Black Dog), kind of thinking about aborting it... The stitch pattern is beautiful, the yarn is a pleasure to knit with, but... it is too fine! I wanted three cables when I first saw the pattern, but I didn't want a wide scarf, thus I picked a light-weight yarn. So light weight, that it is "sock" weight - Artyarns Ultramerino 4. The color is beautiful. But the knitted fabric is a bit too light for a scarf, I came to realize. It doesn't have the "warmth" that a scarf is supposed to have, although it is 100% merino... Anyways. I am debating if I should switch... Maybe it was a bad idea to use sock yarns for a scarf...

How about Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK? You think it'll work?

夢幻麻花圍巾織了七吋長了, 卻有一點點想放棄... 不是花樣不美, 也不是線不好, 而是這線實在是太細啦! 當初想織三條麻花, 又不想要太寬的圍巾, 所以就挑了細線. 這個Ultramerino的線織起來感覺真的不錯, 顏色染的也很漂亮. 可是用來織圍巾好像太單薄了, 沒有圍巾應有溫暖的感覺. 雖然這線是100%美麗諾, 但是我現在這個織片摸起來感覺就是不夠暖. 那個麻花也沒有TKA裡大家織好的麻花那麼"有營養" - 我這個看起來瘦巴巴的... 有點想換線...

你們覺得Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK 看起來如何?

Ooooh Celia, I'm so sorry it's not working for you!
I used a 5ply cashmere (slightly heavier than the yarn you're using) as it doesn't get that cold down here.
Maybe you could make a longer scarf and wrap it around your neck a few times...
I'll think about it some more and get back to you. I'm so sorry. x

PS: I had no idea about the TKA - wow!!

Pretty color, how about using double strand? This yarn is verigated, but the colors are very close to each other, maybe it will work. Or use it with one strand of mohair Feza Kid Mohair multi (#202, #203, or #204), I had one ball of the soft peach color, the color is very similar to what you have in this ultramerino, I think Knitting Studio has that yarn. But if it's mohair, you may have a itchy neck when you wear it...that's just me...

Nora:
It's okay, don't be sorry. I should have known to use a heavier yarn anyway. It is a very nice pattern, everyone at TKA was raving about it!

TCKnit:
Hmmm... double strands - but I only bought enough to make a 60" scarf. At $11 per skein, it's a bit steep if I am to get more. Plus I ordered it from WEBS... you know what my concerns are...
About that Feza Kid Mohair - is it itchy? If not, I may just go check it out. That peach color looks like it may work.

I too would suggest using two strands of the current yarn but since you only bought one skein...Rowan Cashsoft looks very good for this scarf, it should knit up pretty fast! I like the orange color, very few pretty oranges to choose from here in Taiwan :(

I use only use 1 strand to knit mine, and it's a little bit on the thin side. Although I don't like to be strangled when I wear scarf (:O), I could have used 2 strands to give it a bit more substance.

By the way, Celia, could you let me know what your RSS code is?

Thanks.
Margaret (TKA)
