Knitting with Qiviut

Qiviut is well suited to lace knitting and open work. When looking for patterns look for a similar weight yarn (light fingering or lace weight) with the same approximate yardage and gauge. This will help determine how much you will need to complete a project. Always buy 25-50 yards more than the pattern calls for. 

 For heavier weight projects knitting with 2 strands together produces a wonderfully soft warm fabric suitable for hats, mittens and scarves.
