I get a lot of questions about the small yardage super bulky art yarns I spin. Typically someone admires one my yarns like this one.
A great use for this type of yarn is a headband. I have made headbands from super bulky yarns spun from 1.75 oz. of fiber. This one is a 2 ply, but used a small amount of yarn. Don’t be fooled by how little it looks, it stretches to fit a woman’s head perfectly.
Check out my Ravelry project page to see all the headbands I’ve knit. As of today there are seventeen. Scope out my other projects while you are there too. Friend me and say hi.
You can get my free headband pattern here. It’s easy and fast, you’ll have a gorgeous headband in less than an hour. Warning: These are addictive knitting! You’ll want to make another one immediately.
These yarns can be used in weaving projects, to stripe in a cowl or hat, or to create a face framing edging.
Combine with other super bulky yarns, handspun or commercially spun, to use in a larger project. This is a great way to use up leftovers. Make the colors coordinated or wildly contrasting. Try it for a scarf or a larger project.
Wrap a gift for a women in a pretty tea towel and tie with fabulous yarn.
