I’ve never tried knitting a sweater out of superbulky thick/thin yarn before – it’s really more of an oddity than a fashion statement, but it is amazingly warm and light, and definitely an attention-getting piece!
The yarn is Camellia Fiber Company’s CFC Targhee Superbulky Handspun in color Fig (natural dyed with madder root). I think I used 9 skeins – I lost count – of 60 yds/ea.
The pattern is Knitting Pure & Simple’s weekend neck down pullover. This is a very simply written pattern, as the name implies, and isn’t very helpful or well-written – which particularly makes it not worth the $7.00 price tag. Nonetheless, it worked adequately for what I had in mind.
I used US 17s for the body and US 15s for the neck and sleeves and knit size small (42″).
Will I ever wear it? I’ll have to wait until next winter to see . . .
