The fattest yarn in the shop is Burly Spun by Brown Sheep. It’s 100% wool and knits 2-2.5 stitches per inch. Get out your broomstick needles, 15mm, 20mm, even 25mm is ok. You will have your project done in no time.
Come by The Knit Cafe and we can pull out sample after knit sample made from this yarn. Some of it is knit extra tight like the Chunky Cardi which is knit with a 10mm needle. Our Martin Scarf pattern is knit with a 15mm needle and our Mondo Neck Cozy pattern uses a 20mm. Apparently we can’t stop knitting with this wool and who can blame us – it knits-up so darn fast!
We have a wonderful autumnal selection of colours now. Above is Grey Heather, Jack Plum, Spring Bluebell, and Charcoal Heather.
Prairie Fire, Bing Cherry, Sable, Oatmeal, and Oregano
Aztec Turquoise, Cream. Deep Charcoal and Ruby Red.
You could even use the Burly Spun to make an extra big size stuffy, like an owl in our upcoming Crochet Critter Class.
Our AMIGURUMI CLASS is this Thursday!
