It's a cold and rainy day which makes me want to start working on a chunky knit project or two. After all, can any knitter have just one project going on at a time? Not this guy. We are getting more and more great chunky and bulky yarns in stock!! With each new shipment, I find another must have yarn. Here are a few projects I would be excited to cast on in one of our awesome new arrivals:
The Malabrigo Rasta in the above photo would make some amazing projects. Maybe a nice Drop Stitch Cowl? Or you could take three skeins and make a great Radiant Circle Throw using size 17 needles. This is a simply scrumptious yarn that is taunting me to knit something fun and super chunky.
Maybe the Rasta is a little too chunky for your taste but, the Malabrigo Chunky might be just right. I am envisioning a squishy and warm Brioche Cowl knit up in a couple of fabulous colors! This Brioche Bandana Cowl would do the trick. I also love the idea of a simple quick to knit GAP-tastic Cowl. Another great gift option for the man in your life is the Man Hat. The simple stitch pattern in this hat is sure to please anyone looking for a great chunky hat.
Now the question is, which project do I start first?
We're having a ball introducing you to our first yarn line, Coeur d'Alene Yarns. The first yarn in the line is Sasquatch, a fingering yarn hand-dyed locally in the Pacific Northwest and exclusive to Alpaca Direct!
Sasquatch is a sumptuous blend of 80% superwash Merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon. There are two types of this yarn, a tonal and a multi-color.
