More Chunky Knits

In an earlier post, I talked about how much I love chunky knitting and that I was playing around with size US 50 needles. I decided to mess around with them even more this week and finished another cowl.

Using Lion Brand Hometown USA in Chicago Gray, I cast on 16 and did a 2×2 rib through the end of the skein.

I’m also currently playing around with chunky knitting, but with smaller, size 15 needles. Here is one scarf (another one with 2×2 ribbing) that I am working on with Loops and Threads Facets Yarn:

With another pair of size 15 needles, I am playing around with different stitches and am making a linen stitch cowl with Loops and Threads Charisma in Mulberry Bush.

I am still trying to find a pattern that I love for bulkier yarns that I love. If anyone has any patterns or ideas that work really well for them, please send them my way.

  1. Whoa those ARE super chunky needles! That grey cowl reminds me of some of the chunkier Outlander inspired knits I’ve seen. Really like your linen stitch project 😀

    1. Thank you! I go through cycles where I work with one stitch for a long time and right now that seems to be the linen stitch.

      Also, I have yet to read (or watch) Outlander so I haven’t paid attention to the OUtlander inspired knits but now I will have to look them up.
