to use to make raised letters in a scarf background.
I recently saw a sweater knitted with raised sentences over the surface. That gave me the idea to make a scarf very wide (60") & short (6-8")with a sentence running down the middle for my grandson for Christmas.
I have the letter chart. I’ve made a dozen swatches trying to get the letters to appear upraised from the background. I tried a stockinette stitch purling the blocks where the letter stitches are on the graph. The vertical parts of the letters disappear. Is there a better way to do this? (sort of like the designs on wash cloths)
I’ve spent the last 2 days looking at everything I could find on the internet, read the first 17 pages of Help here, & checked out Ravelry. I want to make this sweater all one color with just the letters upraised. I don’t want the sentence to be obvious until you lay the scarf out flat. Is this doable???
Thanks for any help you can give. I’ll go back & try to find the book I saw the sweater in if no one has a solution. I know it’ll work, I just can’t figure out how.
