Brambleberry Cowl: A rich texture to wrap around your neck. Uses 4 balls of Big Wool.

Main Squeeze Cardigan: A cozy cocoon—this sweater knits up in a snap. The mix of texture, proportion, and basic technique makes this project fun as a knitter’s first sweater. In 11 sizes. Uses 9-15 balls of Big Wool.

Rubble Hat and Stripey Scrappy Hat: We are big believers in getting a groove on and making a batch of gifts. The more of these you make, the more inventive your color combinations will become. Each design uses 2 balls of Big Wool, or the equivalent yardage in leftovers if you’re scrapping it.

Bobble Throw: The secret to this throw is that the color bobbles are added after knitting the body of the blanket. This allows plenty of fun in playing with color and design—how many bobbles? Which colors? Uses 10 balls of Big Wool for the main color, 2 balls for the border, plus 1 ball each of 4 colors for the bobbles.
