Has anyone knitted a scarf using Katia "Marilyn" yarn? The pattern states to insert needle in "hole" but does not say which hole! Do you insert the needle inbetween the two narrow strands, OR do you insert the needle in the hole beneath the two narrow strands? Help.
try You tubing it for a tutorial....
I have searched all over for a tutorial on the Marilyn scarf. Any references I have found for it merely display the scarf directions and a photo of the finished scarf. I am so frustrated! My question seems quite simple....which hole to insert my needle...yet, I cannot find an answer. I know someone out there has made the scarf and can help me, but how to reach that person is the mystery.
Insert your needle into the first hole from the top. Then the rest of the yarn falls below creating a ruffle. Interesting yarn!
Do you mean I should insert my needle in the hole formed by the two thin strands of yarn??
Right. You only need one thin yarn over your needle. I'm assuming that this yarn is similar to other ruffle yarns, and that you are trying to make a ruffled scarf.
Hi, Secretary! Didn't you post this at ravelry, too? I guess the yarn is too new for there to be any completed proejcts at ravelry using it. Yours can be the first one!!
I found this pic of the yarn at Webbs.http://www.yarn.com/product/katia-marilyn-yarn/
I would say the 2 strands look substantial enough that you could use them to knit between. Or even the bigger hole below. I don't think it matters. Just be consistent. Try a swatch of a few rows doing it each way and use the one you like the look of best.
You had said it was different then the ruffly yarns, but it appears very similar to me(assuming this pic is the correct yarn - is it??) the video on that page uses a different yarn, but it is a ladder-type ruffly yarn same as the Marilyn yarn.
I just finished a scarf using the Marilyn yarn-mine was the brown shades and turnedout really pretty-I just inserted in the holes sort like the other ruffle yarn after finished you can"t tell where it went- good luck!
I watched a video - actually I saw several that are attached to the red heard yarn web site - www.redheart.com
- - and go to their sashay yarn.
Is the price $19.95 for one skein??? Just curious.
Yes, at some yarn sites. But, go to linniedarling.com and they are selling the Katia Marilyn yarn for $14.00. I have not ordered from them, but another of the forum people has. It appears to me that they have a flat shipping rate of $5.00....much cheaper than most. Give it a try!
My budget doesn't allow for that expense of yarn right now. Thanks for the info. Maybe I can find it at JoAnn's some day on sale.
I am thinking of making a scarf using the fancy silky soft stands of ribbon, any ideas
