I used Neighborhood Fiber Co. which is one of my favorite yarns, locally dyed and sold in Marlyand.
The colors are so vibrant and rich, it's my 'go to' yarn for projects I want to knit. This particular yarn is called Maisonette DK (50% Merino and 50% Tussah Silk). It a gorgeous yarn, but lesson learned, not a good fit for this particular project. The stitch pattern combined with the yarn made the infinity scarf too stiff, bulky and didn't give it enough stretch or body. It just lays flat.
All is not lost, I'm not giving up!
Lesson learned when knitting this piece.
- Swatch a much larger segment in order to get a good feel for how the fabric will stretch
- Use a yarn with some 'give' to it.
- Go back to the drawing board
- Don't give up!
