I am going to be making a Feather and fan throw based sort of on the pattern on Knitpicks. I am double stranding it with Merino Style and Suri Dream though. I think I have decided that I am going to do it on 11s because, while I like the airiness of the 13s I think the 11s just seem to swatch into a better fabric. Now this pattern only has one stitch on each end for selvidge and no border on the ends. what i can’t decide is if it is better to add more stitches to the border or not. I saw one on CPY that had a 10 stitch border i believe (or five? can’t remember for sure at the moment) that seems to lay flatter. I am just not sure which is better since I am using thicker yarn.
Any opinions? Border or no Border?
