I am going through some of my old yarn and found some chenille I would love to make wrist warmer/glovelets with, but when I cast on for the hand, it is not stretchy at all and barely has any give. The next few rows are really stretchy, though. I cable cast on, and had been having wonderful results with wool blends. Is there any way I can get the chenille to be more stretchy with the cast on? (Am I knitting too tight? I'm really bad about that.)
Any help would be great! Thanks!
