Super Bulky Sweater Finished! (Azel Pullover)

Yeah, the super bulky sweater is finished! Now all we need is some Fall weather.  First time knitting with super bulky yarn and I must say it has it’s pluses and minuses for sure.  It was fast to knit up, always a big plus, and it kept me warm and snuggly in the cool air conditioning. I have small hands and the big (size 13) needles and bulky yarn made my hands tired, but not a deal breaker.

This was fun to knit though. It was one piece and then you add the cowl last.  I told my daughter she could unbutton it and use as an afghan. Check out the second picture below. The edging and the cowl are not a straight ribbing and I really like the way it looks.  The designer, Heidi May at The Velvet Acorn (www.thevelvetacorn.com) did a great job!  I also think it’s pretty cool the pattern comes in children and adult sizes.  A child size would knit up super fast. You can find the pattern on Ravelry just do a search for Azel Pullover.

The sweater has lots of ease to it so check out the finished dimensions to make sure it won’t be too big.  I also made this longer. The finished total length from front bottom to back bottom is 60 inches per my daughter’s request. I used 11 skeins of Hayfield Super Chunky with Wool yarn (100g/79 yards/skein).  It’s 80% acrylic and 20% wool.  I wanted it to be easy to wash and dry.  It washed and dried beautifully. I found some pretty wood buttons from Amazon to use. Check out the finished picture below.  This pattern is definitely going into the favorite stack.  🙂

This is so warm and snuggly, it will keep my daughter warm all winter. I am hoping she will send a picture of her wearing it. Hint, hint.

Until next time – Happy Knitting and Weaving….. Caroline
