I started knitting a couple of weeks ago, and so far have completed two Lion Brand Thick & Quick chenille scarves. It’s just a stockinette stitch all the way, really. So I decided I want to make another one, and I like the chenille, but I want a stripey one. From what I understand, to change colors for fairly wide stripes, you have to change yarn each time? So each color change will have ends hanging off, right? Also, if I use smaller needles, this will result in stitches which are tighter, meaning it will be less “see thru” when spread out, yes?
That’s it for the stuff I would like to know fairly quickly… In the long run, I have a few more questions about general organization, equipment, etc. I am practiciing with scarves, but I would eventually like to branch out and make hats, socks, and arm warmers! I have been a bit disappointed with the two beginner’s books I got. I probably need a better beginner’s book, and I certainly need some “equipment”. What do y’all suggest as a good “basic inventory” and a great beginner’s book?
Thanks so much!
