For my second phiaro scarf
I knit this one time for myself with”Litoral” from Aslan Trends I used this method of knitting:
So I cast on only 190 stitches and needle size 5mm with two skeins….. .knit 5 stitches in the back of the stitch so it has a twist in the stitch and purl 5 stitches that will be dropped down at end, knit 5 stitches in back of stitch again, purl 5 stitches, follow that pattern to the 30 stitches and purl them. This way the 5 knit stitches are more secured and will not be lose once you drop the stitches down.
At the end it was still to very, very long so ended up cutting some yarn of the length to make it shorter
See the third phiaro scarf
also knit with “Litoral” From Aslan Trends with needle size 6mm. Knit for Unwind again but this time we decided to knit it with only 140 stitches and in the rounds too. By knitting one row ,the next purl, the next knit, then purl again and so on till one skein was used up. If it would have been my yarn I would have knit this with two skeins to give it more body but this third way of less stitches and knit, purl, knit, purl the round was great no rolling of the edges this way.
