CHUNKY JUMPER

Knit Today Magazine - - Inspiring Colour -

We love chunky wool, in fact sim­ply can’t get enough of it and we’ve fallen head over heels for this amaz­ing Rico Fash­ion Gi­gan­tic Mohair yarn. Worked on 15mm nee­dles, it’s a su­per-fast knit­ting yarn that works up into hats and scarves in no time. When it’s used to cre­ate a gar­ment, like this sim­ple, on-trend jumper it looks spec­tac­u­lar! This one’s been worked in a shade called Pow­der, but there are many oth­ers in the range to tempt you to cre­ate chunky mas­ter­pieces!
