Yarn: Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino (100% super bulky wool) – 87 yds/ea
Needles: US 10s (16″ circulars) and US 11 dpns for hat, US 11s (32″ circulars) for scarf
I bought a Purl Bee kit in colorway Winterberry with one skein of yarn in each of the following colors: Clementine Orange, Red Zinnia, Paprika Red, Pink Grapefruit, Heirloom White, Storm Grey, and Oyster Grey. For the hat, I knit five rounds of each color, which gave me a pretty even distribution of all seven colors. For the scarf, aside from cast-on and cast-off, I knit five rows of each color, which gave me a good scarf width, and also meant that I alternated which end I started a new color on, which let the color-change purl bumps show through on both sides.
I knit the women’s size hat, and for the scarf, I cast on 171 sts and garter stitch 35 rows total before casting off.
Extremely quick projects – thanks to the super bulky weight – and the FOs are very soft and warm! Even after knitting both the scarf and hat, I have approx 50 grams left of each color – this would definitely be enough to knit another hat, maybe even a scarf . . . is there anyone out there who would have some use for this yarn? If there’s anyone who can give these skeins a good home, let me know and I’d be happy to mail them to you 🙂Pin It
