I loves a bit of mahooooosive yarn.
It has to be a favourite of mine.
It's so exciting- seeing that huge skein, rolled up in a cone or ball. So many possibilities ...
I've made quite a few things now, with the big stuff:
And I've got a few projects in mind for the book, too.
If you fancy giving it a go, then there are plenty of commercially produced yarns available. And you can always make your own t-shirt yarn - there's lots of tutorials online to guide you - try this one for size.
It goes without saying that you'll need a big hook-anything from 10-20mm (US 15/N/P - S) depending on the pattern and then you're good to go. Hold it in exactly the same way as you would a smaller hook and yarn- it takes a little getting used to, but you'll soon adapt.
The great thing about this yarn is that it works up really quickly.
In no time at all you can have a bag or basket or slippers!
Enjoy your mahosssive yarn adventures,
