booga question
The original pattern for the booga (as seen on black sheep bags website) calls for 3 skeins of Noro which I have--my question is this--is that calculated for using one strand to knit with or two? I've gotten mixed answers--I've been told to do it w/ two but I only have 3 skeins so I need to know if I have enough yarn to do to strands or if I should stay with one.

Sorry, Rebecca talks about using single/double strands.

I notice that at the end of the thread someone says a single strand works okay, but if knit on the size 10.5 needles the pattern calls for, won't that make the stitches big and holey and a bit problematic?

AND, since the pattern calls for 10.5 needles, doesn't that suggest double-stranding?

But isn't felting supposed to be big and loose when you knit it? So many people have knit this bag--you'd think there'd be a definitive answer. :thinking:

Well, according to Kelly, the two strands felt better because there's more friction...And she ought to know! :rofling:

I'm in a quandry now. I hope I haven't misguided you, Cristy! I used 6 skeins of yarn on my booga, but I knit it bigger. (It turned out wonky because I can't do math.)
