  • Thank you, Dana! You always manage to show me something new and fabulous.

  • Dana, another home run! Thank you!!!!

  • I look forward to your articles on MDK — as does my Ravelry queue.

  • At least three new favorites added to my list. Thanks Dana. I love your selections!

  • Ursa has been on my radar for a while — and I even have an SQ of bulky yarn in my stash. I think it’s meant to be! And I hadn’t seen Wrapper () – it might have to go in the queue, too!

  • I love these choices! Thanks for bringing them to our attention. Happy New Year and happy knitting.

  • Thanks for those ideas and suggestions. I am new to the site and kind of a recovering knitter, so simple is the best for me. Wondering where a pattern might be had. I like the Easy Bulky One and have some yarn from a long ago left to die pattern.

    • Are you on “Ravelry” – you can buy the pattern through that website, directly from the designer.

  • I always love your articles, Dana, and this one does not disappoint! After seaming what seems like a thousand sweaters, I’m ready for some seamless, bulky knitting. Thank you! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  • “Sweaters knit in worsted, aran, or bulky weight yarn”. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!! Thank you Dana;))

  • Love your sweater choices! The Felix Cardigan has been on my radar.

  • I’ve been intimidated by the idea of knitting a sweater but all of these look totally possible- saved 3. Thank you Dana- wonderful selection!
    To the person who asked how to find the patterns- just click on the name of the pattern and you will be connected to the Ravelry page.

  • Thank you!!! With many fingering weight sweaters s-l-o-w-l-y getting finished, I love the idea of popping a few fast, excellent patterns in my list.

  • Perfect browse for a wintry day, added to the queue (of course!) and if a new project with big yarn joins the other WIPs so be it! Thank you Dana and MDK 🙂

  • Thank you, again!, for more great pattern inspiration. As soon as I finish (the also fairly bulky) Magnolia Chunky Cardigan by Camilla Vad, I am seriously looking at Ursa and Felix! Happy New Year!

  • Thank you. I love spinning BFL & masham, so Winterburn will be something I try this year for Ursa & Felix. So much knitting to do in 2020.

  • That Wrapper() looks amazing. I hate having a cold neck but that looks like the right kind of lightweight to deal with overheated buildings. I can picture it as a crazy layer with a fair isle vest peeking out as well!

  • I love Dana. She is organized, fun, practical, and has great taste. Thanks for adding her to the crew. I

  • OMG! I just came here looking for inspiration because I finally finished my #BangOutaSweater2020. I used Rowan Big Wool and went on Ravelry for an easier project than the main squeeze. And here it is! The Easy Bulky One! How about that.
