the sash

Someone asked about the sash I knit for my highlander outfit. It is knit in Peruvian Tweed alpaca and Blue Moon mohair miniloop boucle (Olive garden is the color). Size 10.5 needles, K10, P10 rib for 90 stitches and 8 feet. (I think the whole thing cost about $70 for materials.) 1 skein each, lots of yardage on both. I still have enough yarn left to knit a scarf out of the same.

Nice sash Bob. Did you knit the two yarns together, or alternate so many rows of each?

It is knit singly, and alternates every row in a method I developed (probably was developed centuries before me, actually) called "Chasse" (French for "chase") One yarn chases the other. A Missoni technique, but I do it handknit.
