Mirl: Yes, it is wide, then narrow, then wide again. The fur is so soft but it’s frustrating as heck to work with. SUPER slippery and it’s like knitting with a bag over your head, you can’t see what you’re doing, you have to work by feel.
Suzeeq: I’m so sorry, I’m so dense. So, if I do only 5 rows instead of 7, what do I take out or does it really matter? You can’t see it, the fur covers it all. So, just do like this:
row 1: purl cotton
row 2: knit cotton
row 3: purl cotton
row 4: purl cotton
row 5: purl fur
that would put a purl row on either side of the fur like the designer describes (rows 4, 5 and1) and put a rev st st section in there too (rows 1-3). Does that sound right?
I tried knitting this as a swatch with some fun fur but, honestly, it behaves so differently from the real fur that it wasn’t at all helpful. The whole point of the cotton knitting is to push the fur forward and pull the cotton back so that on the RS all you see is the fur. I would imagine the one K row would keep it from curling and maybe that’s why it’s there?
I want to knit night and day until this is done. I just want to be finished and get on with my life!
Thanks so much for the help! Should I just proceed as I said above??
