Sari yarn - anyone used it?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by gorgybaby, Jan 4, 2011.

  1. This looks beautiful, but apparently can sag and is a bit of a pain to knit up. I thought I might have a go at a bag, have a simple pattern, just to see how it goes. Wondered if anyone else has used it and has any advice to offer, please?
     
  2. To answer my own question I seem to have put a similar question on a couple of years ago, sorry. I have bought some yarn anyway, it looks lovely. Only upping this really in case any knitters were interested, it seems terribly self-indulgent and self-promoting. hate to change the habits of a lifetime.

    It looks gorgeous and I'd love to hear how it knits.
     
  4. It is coming from India, Lapin. I have ordered just a couple of skeins to see what it is like. I am sooo fed up of knitting hats, and if this works it will be lovely. I am planning to use a pattern from knitty, I will try to do a link.

    Is that it?

    True but if the handles/strap are knitted from the sari yarn, they will give and stretch. You could reinforce them by interlining with tailor's canvas or a very strong vilene.

    I found it lovely to knit if you keep it pretty tight.
    Made a bag a bit like this one without the tassels. Didn't need a pattern.
