Needles & yarn
Patons North America Classic Wool Worsted
Gray
Notes

1/19/20 ~ Modernizing traditional by cropping and adding extended dark around neck … adorable. Photo shoot when weather breaks.

Yarn from scraps, another plus. The grey is a ‘workhorse’ yarn, a classic wool from Patons, I thought perfect for this project.

Argyle comes to life with duplicate stitch.

Using small bobbins, shaking or simply holding up the knitting after a row, the knitting goes quickly. Allowing the bobbins to dangle, they literally spin and untangle themselves if the yarn is not too long from the bobbin. Amazing how this technique works. Second pic is naked argyle.

Tips on duplicate stitch:

  • Use your thumb to guide yarn over stitch for fullest coverage.
  • Keep the work loose. When you pull tight, the yarn sinks in and the coverage is minimal (ugly).
  • Work from the bottom and go up.
  • Focus on not splitting yarns.
  • Keep slow.
