Just a quick project to brighten up the cold winter days. Easy for a complete beginner, but a quick and colourful snappy result for an experienced knitter too.
Tools: 12 mm needles, 1 skein Fleece Artist ‘Tosca’, 1 skein Fleece Artist ‘Goldiehair’
(Note: you can substitute any super bulky yarn (1oo metres) – Malabrigo Rasta or Aquarella would work well – and choose a matching or co-ordinating mohair (200 metres) such as Debbie Bliss Angel ).
Cast on 12 stitches with Tosca (or your bulky yarn choice). Knit (garter stitch) every row to the end of the skein.
Have fun and make some pom poms from the mohair yarn and attach them to the ends. I made mine very dense and let them dangle a little at different lengths for some movement. I used the Clover Pom Pom Makers – they come in a variety of sizes, from very tiny to jumbo, and the result is always perfection.
