I’m trying to make a scarf out of this lovely ball of boucle-type wool. I’ve tried at least 5 times to get beyond the first row, but each time I’ve finished up with the wrong amount of stitches, as I can’t see where to insert the hook… then when I try to undo it to start again, it snags on itself and breaks. Very pretty yarn, but so frustrating to work with!
