You may remember my Star Stuff super bulky cowl from the other day, the one made from that gorgeous LB Art Yarn yarn? After that, I became obsessed with super bulky yarn. I immediately pulled out some Berroco Brio from a cowl I’d frogged a couple of months ago. After nearly an hour on Ravelry, I’d settled on…the same pattern I’d used the first time around. But this time I used smaller needles and cast on fewer stitches and ended up with a cowl I like much better.
That wasn’t the end of my love affair with super bulky. I was forced to go back to Yarn Social on Wednesday, and what fell into my hands but a beautiful skein of Malabrigo Rasta and a purple fur pompom? They said they needed to become a hat, ASAP. I obliged.
But now, though the bulky continues to call to me, I must return my focus to previously scheduled knitting, as I do have some deadlines to meet. I did enjoy my super bulky interlude, though!
I have a sweater out of super bulky. It was fast to knit and looks hip and cool (very unusual for me). It is addictive, and when you switch back to socks you feel like a giant.
Haha! I too need to look hip and cool! What pattern did you make?
I love your bulky cowl and hat 💜💜💜
I looooove super bulky, it just makes everything go so quickly! Plus the super squish factor makes it even better
