bright yellow chunky scarf

 

Decemberist is a big super chunky triangle shawl - super cosy and super quick to knit... less than 10 hours!

The pattern is by Melanie Berg and is available to buy on Ravelry.

I knitted this shawl in 2017 using 4 balls of Wendy With Wool Super Chunky. Now discontinued.

We now stock King Cole Big Value Super Chunky.

Super Chunkies are perfect for quick projects and King Cole Big Value Super Chunky has a good meterage for a small price.

Decemberist features a lovely lace pattern.

Lace needs to be stretched to open up the holes and reveal the pattern. Normally with a natural fibre I would soak the item in Eucalan, squish out the excess water and pin the item out. You can see an example here.

Wendy With Wool Super Chunky has 25% wool and 75% acrylic. Given the high acrylic content I blocked this shawl differently - I didn't want the yarn to flatten or become over stressed. So I steam blocked the shawl using this tutorial, obviously pinning it out in a triangle shape!

We also have another super chunky shawl - Eremophila knitted in King Cole Big Value Super Chunky.
