Funky chunky

The other day, I had done my required four rows on the mohair wrap, and I wasn’t in the mood to work on the Thunderstruck socks. I wanted something NEW.

I still had the Tabby Cat Chunky yarn sitting out from when I dyed it up the other day, so I decided to go pattern hunting. I came up with Silla. Because of the tweedy shades in the yarn, it needed to be something fairly simple. Any pattern would just get lost.

The asymmetrical fronts give it a little bit of interest. Or at least it will. It doesn’t look like much now, but I’m only about halfway through the yoke.

I know a chunky knit isn’t what most people normal would cast on going into spring… but hey… I’ve never claimed to be normal….

  1. LOL (I’m not claiming to be normal either!). That is a very pretty pattern – I love the way it is asymmetrical. And the color is screaming SPRING!!!

    Knit brains are never normal. I always seem to find myself wanting to knit big chunky sweaters in the heat of the summer. It’s when I am indoors the most so I guess it makes sense.


  3. I love asymmetrical clothing, even though I am soooo not asymmetry driven in other areas. Go figure. And I adore green!!! Kudos on the finished socks and I cannot wait to see the parrots done.
