When I first started this blog I loved making smaller items that worked up quick. Now I seem to be interested in creating larger pieces that complete an outfit (I.e. most recently The Taylor Vest)! This past weekend I finished a vest for my Mama and allowed myself to purchase some new yarn I’ve been gawking at for a while now..
Lion Brands Ice Cream yarn! Specifically the ‘Big Scoop‘ skein that is 10oz and sold at my neighborhood Michael’s for around $9!! I chose the color Cookies N Creme because of the neutral colorway.
Here’s the skinny on the Big Scoop:
Weight: Light (3)
Contents: 100% acrylic
Skein Weight: 10 oz. / 284 g
Yardage: 1117 yd. / 1022 m
22 sts – 30 rows = 4″ (10 cm)
16 sc – 20 rows = 4″ (10 cm)
Suggested Knitting Needle:
3.75 mm, US – 5
Suggested Crochet Hook:
5 mm, US – H/8
Lion Brand suggests that this yarn is perfect for baby blankets and other projects for children and I totally agree! With skeins named Tutti Frutti and Cotton Candy, how could you go wrong! BUT I have chosen this yarn for more of a big girl project, so to speak.
If everything goes according to plan I hope to turn this gorgeous skein of yarn (or two) into a kimono!👘
Here are some photos of my current work in progress!
(After folding this panel I thought, wow this would make a super cozy baby blanket! So if you were on the fence about using this for your next baby project, I say go for it!)
Or grab a skein and hang out for this pattern to be released! 🙂
