I’m a new knitter and I’m working on a scarf pattern from the back of a yarn label for LionBrand titled Ribbed Scarf.
Everything is going good with the K2, P2 for two rows each (or 4 rows total for pattern). My problem is weaving in the ends. I can weave them in fine to hide them but that side of the scarf is “stiff”. It just isn’t the soft and flexible feel of the rest of the scarf. Its actually kind of stiff and takes away from the rest of the pattern.
I’m thinking its because with the 2 X 2…all the weave ins are on the same side and just adds extra thickness to one side. Do you think this would be better if I did this with an odd row count? Its a scarf so I don’t think it really matters as long as I’m consistant.
Thanks for the input!
I’m making this for my 10 year old son, who asked for a scarf from me. He won’t care about perfection, but I do. And for future reference it is important.
