Hi Everyone ;)

I'm wanting to try to knit this pattern:

http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/bignet_stole.html

The problem is that when I try to find these yarns, I can't. I haven't even seen any online store selling the Crystal Palace Big Net and only a few of the Glam and hardly none of the Raggedy :wall:. My question to all of you knowlegable knitters is can you recommemd yarns that I can replace these for to still give me that sort of look?:shrug:

You can look up the gauges at yarndex.com, to see what other yarns will work, and they'd have to be netlike tape yarns. The scarf is knit with Big Net, the others are for the fringe. Maybe something like 2 strands of Lion Incredible or other ribbon yarns will work as a sub.

I have been looking for this yarn sinc i started knitting and have never been able to find it. The problem is I don't know of anything else that will really give that same look. I think it is the wide, bunched up netting that gives it the look. I haven't been able to find anything similar either. :shrug:

http://www.bahrcreek.com/yarns.html or their Ebay store at http://cgi.ebay.com/CRYSTAL-PALACE-BIG-NET-YARN-new-colors_W0QQitemZ8280739340QQihZ012QQcategoryZ75569 QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

There's also Crystal Palace's "Summer Net", which is Big Net in a different set of colours - http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Crystal_Palace_Yarn-Summer_Net_Yarn-700.html

I'm oddly drawn to "Celery"...

I know this is out of my experience...but I saw something in IK that looks kinda similar...

Its called Loop d Loop Fern (Tahki Stacy Charles) and IK lists it as a 2 wpi and its 81 yds/50g/

Maybe this helps a little? (http://www.tahkistacycharles.com/dyn_prod.php?p=FER&k=74277)
