Remember how I was going to start a new blanket, a scrappy fingering weight blanket? HAHAHA that didn’t last very long! I DID start it, cast on enough stitches to almost fill a 60″ cable (using knitted on cast on, for those following along) with a size 3 needle, and knit three rows. Maybe four? And I didn’t like it. It was too thin, too lightweight. I knew I’d want a blanket with a bit more density. So I frogged it and immediately started over with two strands held together. I used the same cast on (which wasn’t quite as loose and messy this time) with size 5 needles this time, and I’ve already made it through several very long rows.
It’s going to be as random as I can stand to make it. I started with two yarn balls of different sizes and will just add another color as one runs out. With luck, it will be marled in a fun and quirky way!
Happy Wednesday, friends.
That looks fun! I might copy you. It will not be the first time, nor the last.
I think my habitation throw using 4 ply/fingering weight will end up being a shawl, it will never be warm enough as a blanket for me. I like your idea of doubling the yarns though.
Yeah, I’m not sure I’ll ever actually complete a blanket-sized object with fingering yarn!
That looks great! Love those colors together 🙂
That will be a fun and cozy knit. I might copy you, too.
The more, the merrier!
