Introducing the Bobble Buster sweater (in both kids and adult sizes), a top-down circular yoke, sprinkled with all-over bobbles. There’s no stranded colourwork or intarsia, and there are so many ways to have fun with this pattern. Use one colour for your bobbles – or an infinite variety. Use up your tiniest scraps, show off a treasured mini skein set, or best of all, get a curated dyed-to-order kit from dyer Annie Paaren, my collaborator and the inspiration for this design.
Join me for a cast-on party over on Instagram from January 1 to 7. I’d love to see your first few rounds and the yarns you’ve chosen. Tag your post with #bobblebuster and #castonparty so we can find each other. If you want to keep the community spirit going as you knit, join the Bobble Buster KAL, running from January 7 to February 28. I’ll be hosting this on Slack, a great place to share images and messages, but you will need an account and an invite. Prizes will include products from my shop, plus fun items from Bad Betty Knits, and pretty yarn! Winners will be drawn at random, from FOs (finished objects) and mostly FOs (slow knitters deserve prizes, too).
