Hi there – new knitter here, I’ve been knitting since New Year’s Day. (Have crocheted since I was 4, though, along with other crafts.) Tension, of course, is still a problem, but I figure I’ll stick with larger yarn and needles and with my current heart-throb yarn, mohair lace-weights in airy patterns, until my tension gets more even.
So, here’s the question – is there anything inherently unstable in the fisherman’s net stitch in the Wisp pattern from Knitty? What I was thinking I’d do is make the end panels as written, but make the fisherman’s net stitch sections in the middle three times as long. I just want to make sure that this won’t be a problem due to any instability in the stitch itself, as it’s very open, and I haven’t the experience to know whether that would be an issue – and it’s to be a gift for my sister!
I’m using Sublime Kid Mohair (60% kid mohair/35% nylon/5% extra fine merino), if that makes any difference…
Thanks in advance for any help!
