has anyone used chenille yarn ?
Yeah, it’s beyond tricky.
I don’t particularly care for working with it. It’s tends to shed a bit as you work with it, and if you have to frog back, it doesn’t hold up well. Also, it tends to shift a bit as you work with it-- meaning, slant a little. I don’t know how to describe it any better, but after several rows, you notice it.
I don’t care for it either. I find it harder to work with and it doesn’t show your stitches very well so if you use it use a simple pattern.
It can be difficult to work with, and sometimes the stitches will work loose in the middle, making a big LOOP in the middle of your knitting. (it’s called “worming”)
Most chenille yarns work better with crochet.
One of my best friends gave me a few skeins of Patons Bohemian for my birthday. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I didn’t really like it. But I did give it a chance and made the Loopy Scarf by Patons http://www.patonsyarns.com/pattern.php?PID=1461
It shed like crazy when I worked with it, but when I was done, I actually liked how soft and warm it felt around my neck.
I’ve used it before. I love how soft it is, but it doesn’t hold up well, especially if you have to frog. Also, I think it squeaks on the needles and it drives me batty.
