the herringbone stitch...



I just wanted to tell you
those of you who have made comments
that you don't need
gigantic needles to make the herringbone stitch

I used those needles because of the yarn
it's thick and hairy and it gets tangled up with smaller needles
!!!!!

so use smaller ones and thinner yarn
and you'll see how lovely it is





I also came across another way of doing the stitch
which is a little whole lot more cumbersome
this one is as easy as it gets

knit 1 slip a stitch yo psso
then
purl 2tog don't remove stitches and purl into first one again and remove

the end
promise
you know me
I don't do complicated
I still can't make the
Queen Annes Lace
scarf


...............................................................

yes it is!!!!!!!
