I’m going to be knitting a lace shawl with superwash 100% wool sock fingering weight yarn. I wanted to know which join would be better to use with this project… the Russian join or the felted join?:think:
I have not used the Russian join before…but the felted join has been strong for me and what I normally do …
you will find it difficult to do a felted join with superwash wool. That’s the point of superwash - not felting.
I don’t think the felted will work with superwash wool. I have had good luck with the Russian join. It is very sturdy and not very noticeable in the lace baby blanket I’m making.
