I saw some of this Stylecraft Poodle wool a couple of years ago in a shop in town and saw from the label '1 ball=1 scarf'. I'm not a good knitter, in fact I can only do plain stitch and haven't ever progressed from being able to knit a scarf. I really liked the wool which was lovely and soft, having mohair added in, and thought it looked simple enough for even me to manage.
A year or two later, I came across it again and had a brainwave - I could ask a very good knitter at work and she'd be able to sort it out. However, she was baffled too. I asked the lady on the wool stall at the market, but she'd no idea either. I took it to my Mum, who is also a good knitter and she was stumped . My mother in law, also a good knitter, couldn't work it out either. By this time, I was ready to donate it to a good cause. In the end, my sister worked it out and showed me how to knit it and that the stitches were made using the black tape bit. I spent an hour or two knitting it up and she finished the ends off.
