The Yarn: Briggs & Little Country Roving

Colorway pictured: Blue Heather
Skein details:
 155 Yds (142 m) per 8 oz (227g) Roll. / 100% wool, 5 strand
Knitting needles: US 11, 8 mm / 8 stitches & 11 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Crochet hook: US N-15, 10 mm / 7.5 sc & 8 rows over 4 inches (10 cm)
Cons: This yarn is made of 5 strands of fiber, which can pull apart if you’re doing something more heavy duty. I ran into issues with it pulling apart while weaving and tying macrame knots.
Pros: Country roving lends itself to getting creative beyond knitting or crochet. I definitely loved the color and texture, both of which inspired me to play with making a small wall hanging and practicing my macrame & braiding skills!
Pattern Ideas: I’d recommend that knitters try a larger-gauge version of the Faux Woven Cowl with this yarn. The Round Granny Cushion would crochet up wonderfully with this yarn (and is super quick to make). But also, dipping your toe into the world of weaving would be really cool with Country Roving too!
