Since you all were so helpful yesterday, I figured I'd ask this question before I get too far into my next project.
I just started to knit a scarf for my friend, and I wanted to make it extra thick, so I decided to do it with two threads together. I'm just doing K2P2, with Red Heart Super Saver yarn, and it's getting really stiff. Do I need to use bigger needles, or is it just because of the yarn I'm using? Will it get softer if I wash it? Should I use a different stitch pattern?
If you're using the same needle you would knit a single strand with, that's the problem. Doubling RHSS would give you a super bulky yarn weight and you need at least an 11, but probably a 13 or 15 needle would be better to make it soft and drapey.
