diagnal knitting stripe
I am going to knit a Christmas tree motif on a sweater. I have the pattern - but I want to add a tinsel stripe (diagnal). Would it be best to darn it in at the end, or would it look ok if I did one stitch on one row, then on the next row do another stitch one further along (and above the first stitch). Would it be ok to use a "fluffy" or spikey kind of wool on this stitch?
