I have never seen Bernat mega bulky worked up and I have got to say I think it works up great, at least when knitted. I love how this super chunky cowl looks in garter stitch. It looks so cozy and warm , so I know I'd really appreciate during these extremely cold months. And as chunky as it is , it has to be a really quick knit.

At first I thought it was made with a ribbed edging, but I guess it isn't! This would be really fast to knit. Those large size 35 needles make my hands tire fast (old age!) but for no longer than it would take to do this, it would at least be worth trying.

Easy and stylish

wonderful really good things to do
