the crystal palace chenille? This chenille is very thin and prone to knots....lol....anyways I purchased this to make a scarf and I'm doing a 2x2 ribbing...I'm using size 7 wooden needles. But as I'm knitting it looks very loose and it is very hard to make out the ribbing. I have frogged it several times and it still looks the same. Should I go to a size 6 needle?

I also purchased the crystal palace chenille called taos...and I started that one to see the difference as it's a little thicker yarn and I'm knitting that on size 9...it looks a little better but not a lot.

Is it me or the yarn?

Thanks for the help.

It's the yarn. Chenille doesn't stretch, so the stitches will be kind of loosey.

Thanks! Because as I'm knitting this it doesn't really look like the picture so I figured it must be me...lol :rofling:
