Hi Everyone :wink:

I’m wanting to try to knit this pattern:

[U][/U]
[COLOR=black]The problem is that when I try to find these yarns, I can’t. I haven’t even seen any online store selling the Crystal Palace Big Net and only a few of the Glam and hardly none of the Raggedy :wall:. My question to all of you knowlegable knitters is can you recommemd yarns that I can replace these for to still give me that sort of look?:shrug:[/COLOR]

[FONT=Verdana]You can look up the gauges at yarndex.com, to see what other yarns will work, and they’d have to be netlike tape yarns. T[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]he scarf is knit with Big Net, the others are for the fringe.[/FONT][FONT=Verdana] Maybe something like 2 strands of Lion Incredible or other ribbon yarns will work as a sub.

Hi Simone
Sorry I can’t help you with where to purchase the yarn from…But would just like to say that is one cute shawl…So I hope you manage to find a supplier…Good Luck

I have been looking for this yarn sinc i started knitting and have never been able to find it. The problem is I don’t know of anything else that will really give that same look. I think it is the wide, bunched up netting that gives it the look. I haven’t been able to find anything similar either. :shrug:

http://www.bahrcreek.com/yarns.html or their Ebay store at http://cgi.ebay.com/CRYSTAL-PALACE-BIG-NET-YARN-new-colors_W0QQitemZ8280739340QQihZ012QQcategoryZ75569QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

There’s also Crystal Palace’s “Summer Net”, which is Big Net in a different set of colours - http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Crystal_Palace_Yarn-Summer_Net_Yarn-700.html

I’m oddly drawn to “Celery”…

I know this is out of my experience…but I saw something in IK that looks kinda similar…

Its called Loop d Loop Fern (Tahki Stacy Charles) and IK lists it as a 2 wpi and its 81 yds/50g/

Maybe this helps a little?
