Novice but adventurous knitter here. I’m designing a pattern for a 4" x 70" skinny scarf for my husband. The yarn is handspun marled wool/silk, highly variegated red/blu/green, DK weight but thick/thin. So it’s not a yarn to showcase stitch definition.
I want a less flimsy fabric, with no possibility of the dreaded curl, so I have in mind to use Double Stockinette stitch on #7 needles. Not knowing when to leave good enough alone, I would like to include a border in a contrasting stitch.
My question: Double Stock is chunky–can anyone suggest a double-sided stitch of comparable thickness to use for a border?
Thanks for reading!
