Good day all,
I have some 100% bamboo 4-ply yarn, with which I would like to knit a pencil skirt. Do I need to put a zip into the skirt, or will I be able to knit it in the round and just slip it on?
Some points to consider:
- I have crocheted with 100% bamboo before. It was tightly spun and the finished fabric had zero stretch. The yarn I am using now is loosely spun, and the post-blocking tension samples stretch to roughly 150% of their relaxed width.
- The skirt will be two colours, with some stranding. Will this affect the stretchability?
While I have been knitting for a few years, I have never used this specific yarn for this specific type of garment, so the assistance of those in the know is greatly appreciated.
