Have You Knit With Three Strands of Yarn?
I bought a book called "Ten Hour Knitted Afghans". I'd like to make two or three knitted afghans for Christmas gifts. All the afghans in this book are knitted with three skeins of yarn held together. The needles are either sixe 17 or 25 0r 50. I need some tips. Anybody ever knit this way? I'm a novice at this type of knitting. Do you use the yarn as is or do you wind into balls? How do you work with three strings of yarn at once? Any special techniques? How do you hold your hands? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I'd consider myself an average-intermediately skilled knitter. I have made many sweaters, a prior knitted afghan of all different stitch squares, lots of scarves, even a knitted Christmas stocking for my dog. I'm willing to take on something new. Thanks in advance, anyone who sees this!
