I chose these patterns to show off the beautiful new Clara Yarn, Cormo 3.0 – Sheep (bulky weight). I used most of 3 skeins (120 yds/ea) on the shawl, and the fourth skein on the hat.
Shawl pattern: Maya’s shawl, knit on US 10s
Hat pattern: Fidra hat, knit on US 9s and US 10 1/2s
The shawl lace knit in this bulky weight yarn blocked out beautifully – it opened up but didn’t seem to grow much. But warning: the hat grew HUGE! I mean, it must have doubled in size! I had to throw it in the dryer for over half an hour, just to get it somewhere in the vicinity of the right size. I was really bummed because it fit perfectly before blocking. Had I to do it over again, I would not have blocked the hat – it looked just as beautiful pre-blocking.Pin It
