I’m frogging again. This makes me look like a bear cub. So I think I’ll scrap the original pattern altogether for now–this yarn’s too bulky, but I think it will be perfecet for some Schulana Morbido I have.
Instead, I’m going to use a K1P1 rib, which disappears into the slubs, but which will spread out my fabric a lot more and make it less bouncy. And then I won’t have that aggressive curl, either.
The bottom half is loose ribbing, which also breaks up the thick and thin pockets and makes the fabric look less like molten lava or exotic mold. And we’re off!
