I prefer using good old Red Heart yarn, super saver, when I’m trying out a new pattern, like, cable or whatever. It makes the design pop out clearly, which gives me immense satisfaction. I like to clearly SEE my design.
My question: are softer yarns going to show the designs, especially intricate ones, like saxon braid?
And, what size needle do you use, when KNITTING SAXON BRAID?
With what type of yarn?
I tried the saxon, and the design wasn’t satisfactory, probably cause I slipped as if to knit, instead of slipping as if to purl.
Anyways, what type of yarn, and what size needle have you successfully used to make a saxon braid pop out, and be easily seen in your work?
