Wait a minute, fellow knitters. It is not chenille that has caused this problem unless the combination of rayon/cotton/linen blend is what chenille is made of. I appreciate your kind words of sympathy. The store owner where I purchased this yarn is insisting that it is my technique that is causing the worming. Why, then, has this never showed up before in the seven scarves that I have previously knitted? She has no answer but continues to insist it is something I'm doing wrong. OH Woe! I am $52.00 down the drain on this project!!

Oops. Somewhere we got the idea it was chenille, I guess. The only thing I can think of is to be very careful with each stitch to make sure it snugs up as you go.

I've only heard of chenille worming. It's very weird that it's happening with a plied yarn.
