Hey everyone! I’m teaching my roommate how to knit, and I’m sooo excited that she wants to learn! She’s been working a little in garter stitch with the English method and her stitches are pretty even.
Instead of a basic garter stitch scarf or something like that, I think that a Booga Bag would be an excellent first project to get practice with the knit stitch, be a bit of a challenge, and have a great and practical result (with no stitch definition! teehee) I’ve never made a Booga Bag either, so I’m probably going to make it along with her, so we go through the pattern at the same time.
She’s a brand new knitter and a college student, so we cant something that’s very budget friendly. She wants a nice self-striping wool like the Noro the pattern calls for - but for less than thirty bucks a bag. I myself will be putting in my own stripes with stash-busting Cascade 200, but she really wants something that stripes on its own.
Anyone know of some good, cost efficient self-striping worsted wool?
