Yarns For Big, Squishy Knits!

  • A chunky cowl in green, blue and pink speckled bulky yarn.

I know, I know. Its only July. It’s about this time every year that my mind starts wandering into images of cool weather with such a chill that makes me happily reach for a bit of knitted comfort. So I am thrilled to announce that my Poseidon Super-Bulky single-ply yarn has been born!

This base is kettle dyed in small batches so no two skeins are alike. The feedback on this yarn has been so positive that I had to make a pattern for it. My Anemone Cowl is now available FREE for a limited time both on my website and on Ravelry. It is the perfect companion to this giant skein of luxurious, squishy yarn! If you want a super fun, quick knit with just a little bling – this pattern is for you!

I incorporated both the Channel Islands Cast On and Bind Off for this cowl and the results are stunning. The overall texture of this cowl is meant to show off the beauty of variegated yarns. You are of course free to use whichever super bulky yarn tickles your fancy, but I would love it if you would tag me on Instagram @maelstromfiberarts when you post pictures of your project!

You can download the pattern for free through the end of July at maelstromfiberarts.com and on Ravelry. Happy Knitting!
