I'm new to this forum, and quite new to knitting, so go easy on me :o)
I live in the UK and I was recently in Spitalfields and saw this thing that I don't quite know how to describe. They were all quite modern, little stoles that wrap around the shoulders, with very very very fine yarn and huge stitches, like the texture of a cobweb. It's not a Shetland cobweb shawl or anything that fancy, but very light and wispy. I'd take a picture but you're not supposed to and the vendors don't take too kindly to that! Could anyone point me in the direction of some pictures or, if I'm lucky!, general instructions on what such a thing consists of? (ie yarn type, size of needles, what stitches).
I would be so grateful!
