Help With Eyelash Yarn
My daughter is a fan of those "eyelash" scarves ... has a couple of them .. I in my infinitive knitting wisdom (yeah right) decided to get a couple of balls of Patons Cha Cha multicolored and attempt a scarf since I have yet to finish ANYTHING ... I had tried it with one of those nubby type yarns with the doodads on it but they wouldn't pull thru the stitches with ease ... this stuff is easier .. I am using circular 8 mm's ...

I have about 2 inches done ... when I look at it you can see the stitches, I mean the "eyelashes" are into the stitches in some places (MOST places) .. do you kind of pick those out with the needle so you can't see the stitching? I'm doing straight knit right across.

Thanks
Toby

I am doing scarves with eyelash yarn also.

I rub the stitches that are on the needle back and forth to loosen up the 'eyelashes' I also pick at the places where it looks a little bald.

Good luck.

When I first made the scarves with eyelash, I did have to sort of "comb" it to get all the lashes to fluff.. or shake it a bit.
You got the right idea!

Works for me!! How many stitches do you cast on and how many inches are you making yours? I have 41 stitches on mine .. I think that's how many I started out with!!

Mine is skinny, only 22 stitches, I don't know how long it will end up being, I'm just using 2 skeins of yarn, when it runs out, I'm done.

I am making 2 of them for my nieces (they are 3 and 6 years old).
