I happen to be a knitter who truly loves bulky knits. For me, instant gratification is often key and bulky weight patterns offer this – they are fast, quick knits and cozy to wear. Today I want to share a few of my favorites, including one that is brand new!
Sentiment by Andrea Rangel is a beautiful shawl knitted up in Malabrigo Rasta, a lovely 100% merino wool that comes in skeins measuring 90 yards (82 m ). This project calls for four skeins and a size US 15/10mm needle. This would make a wonderful gift for a special friend or for ones self.
Fezziwig by Melissa Schaschwary is a cozy top down raglan sleeve cardigan created in Quince & Company’s Osprey, a heavy worsted weight 100% American Aran Wool in skeins of 170 yards. This project calls for 900 to 1030 yards (823 – 942 m) and size US 11 (8.0 mm) and US 10 (6.0 mm) needles. This beautiful creation is FREE and available on Melissa’s website.
Hassop by Marie Wallin is a slip stitch and cable wrap over cardigan using Cocoon, a blend of 80%merino wool and 20% kid mohair, and a size US 10 (6.0 mm) and US 10½ (6.5 mm) needles. I personally love the stitch pattern used in this design, including the deep garter stitch borders
