Quick Knits Project Notes Week 7: Quick and Bulky

Posted by Odessa Reichel on

This week we have an armful of bulky yarns that work up quick, all 20% off!

They will be on sale until next Monday, December 21st in the morning when our final Quick Knit is revealed.

We also have two super quick hats that would work with any of these yarns that we've knit up as well as a few other pattern ideas. We're combining the pattern notes for both patterns today since they have a lot in common.

This week Mona knit the Twist of Fate Beanie by Cathryn Johnson using one ball of super vibrant orange Rowan Big Wool and Odessa knit the Estelle Lana Grande Hat Kit pattern in Estelle Bulky. Both are nice bulky hats that feature cables - the Twist of Fate Beanie has all over cables and the Lana Grande pattern has a feature cable surrounded by textured stitches. They're both quite nice hats that make great gifts if you're not quite sure what to knit and are quite stylish. Pick the recipient's favourite colour or a nice neutral (and add a pom pom if you'd like) and let you needles fly!

Any of these yarns would work for both of the patterns. Estelle Bulky is a touch lighter than the other two yarns but they all knit up nicely and lend different characteristics to a bulky hat. Rowan Big Wool is soft and squishy, Cascade Lana Grande is wooly with lots of body and Estelle Bulky is smooth and has nice stitch definition.

Here are some more pattern ideas that would work with 1 skein of any of our Quick Knit yarns this week to make a gift in a hurry:

Check back next week for even quicker yarns and projects for last minute gifts.
