I’ve historically only knit with solid wool yarns, and so when I’ve reached the end of one skein I have felted the next skein to the first. I prefer this method to knitting two strands together and then sewing in the ends. However, as a relatively new knitter who lacks the project experience to know when to adopt which method I’m seeking advice. Presently I am knitting a multidirectional diagonal scarf, and the pattern can be found here http://douma.net/Karen/knitting/Accessory-Scarves/Multidirectional_Diagonal_Scarf.htm. I’m using a self-striping yarn that is made of wool: http://www.nashuaknits.com/yarns/yarn_woolystripes.html. Here is an idea of the look I’m trying to achieve: http://virginiawool.prettyposies.com/archives/cat_multidirectional_diagonal_scarf.html
How do you suggest working in the new skein on this scarf? Do you suggest felting on scarves? I was planning on switching the skein at a part of the scarf where it appears as if it is the next triangular section, so I was thinking attempting to knit two strands together and sew them in on this type of a scarf might be difficult.
Thank you all so much!
