Here is a lovely knitted tube that behaves just like yarn. Very slinky and slippery due to the fine rayon thread making up its construction, Quicksilver is the perfect yarn for both knitted and crocheted trims. It also knits lovely pattern stitches since it is so flexible. And, yes, the gauge and needle above are correct--because the strand is highly elastic, most knitters find they can work on a larger needle and still get the small gauge. This is my yarn of choice for crocheted edges that are finished with a reverse single crochet, (crab stitch). My trick: use an f hook for the initial row of sc, then switch down to an e hook for the reverse row.
Available in all of our hand dyed, sandwashed and Layers colors.
