Working with fun fur(or similar yarn) has its moments but its a fun result when finished with project.
It might help to address your particular problem. If you want to post it here we may be able to help you.
in the meantime....
the suggestion that stvteri88 gave was definatly an option. I do that to make an effect in colors that I want or to make the item thicker. And the extra strand does make it easier to work with.
I use anywhere from a size 10 to 19 bamboo needle. I found that metal didnt work very well for me. Just remember on the stitches you are wanting work, it may help to twist your left needle where you can see the underneath of the stitches your working better. I hope I said that right.
Anyway, I have a girlfriend who crochets with this stuff and and has no problems. I CANNOT.
When I tried, It wound up across the room.
lol. I can knit with it and around fall/winter i knit quite a bit with it. I get orders for hats and scarves.
So It can be done. Give it another shot.
Hope this helps!
Happy Christmas Knitting!!
