Rowan Big Wool. Chunky.
I was born 'just over the hill' from the Rowan woollen mill in Yorkshire, England. I have always had a 'soft spot' for this very British, down to earth company. The Rowan range of yarns is vast, I have selected my very favourite yarns as I would need a shop the size of a rugby field to stock them all!
Patience is a virtue, especially when taking up the genteel art of knitting. HOWEVER sometimes a girl just needs instant gratification. The iconic Rowan Big Wool is a supersized ball of chunky merino wool, it's so delicious! The combination of thick wool and big needles makes for almost instant knitting, a beanie can be made in an hour or so, and a sweater in a weekend. If you need any further persuasion, how about grabbing yourself a complimentary copy of 'Rowan Big Wool -4 projects' This super little pattern book is beautifully presented and features a single ball beanie, a voluptuous scarf, a classic *moss stitch sweater and an ever so comfortable oversized cardigan. Just remember to click on the free pattern book when ordering your Big Wool.
*Moss stitch sweater pattern is incorrect, please do not knit it!
