Love at first big, cozy stitch

Fall head over heels for these quick projects. 

Cooler weather is still lingering for many of us in the Northern Hemisphere, but it's at that time of year we don't want to invest the time to knit or crochet cold-weather gear in finer yarns—by the time we're done knitting a DK-weight sweater, for example, it will be spring! 

For quick, fun projects that you can still make and wear before the cold weather retires, look to super bulky or jumbo yarns such as Berroco Noble™ or Berroco Macro™.
The six patterns in Booklet #379 Berroco Noble are chic and sophisticated, requiring no more than four balls of this super soft merino yarn. If you want a bolder look, the six patterns in Booklet #378 Berroco Macro offer vibrant color blocking and stunning texture, and all with three skeins or fewer. We also have free patterns in both Berroco Noble and Berroco Macro!

Today we're highlighting a few patterns published in these yarns that you might not have seen yet. 
Melissa Tyler's Sugar Rush Cowl is crocheted with just one hank of Berroco Macro. Choose a bright, cheery color, such as Snowy Owl Eyes (shown below) or a more muted color—just make sure you find fun buttons! Photo by Emily Devlin
The Macro Cabled Blanket by Michelle Kupfer is a cozy cabled lap blanket knit up in just five hanks of Berroco Macro. This blanket shows just how great Macro looks in patterns with serious stitch definition. Photo by Michele Kupfer
Berroco Macro can also be used to make garments, such as the Malmo Sweater I designed for Holla Knits, a digital publication. You're probably thinking "but this email said quick projects!" Well, I knit this entire sweater in half a day. This sweater doesn't use much yarn, either—you'll only need three or four skeins of the main color, and one skein of each of the four contrast colors. I'd love to see this worked up in a neutral palette, and Macro has great options for that!
Amy Christoffers worked up a cuddly shawl using three balls of Berroco Noble for Knitty's Winter issue. Snowberry features brioche stitch (really, it's easy!) and fun optional pompoms.
Kate Joyce's Chunkified Retreat Shawl uses four balls of Berroco Noble to create a side-to-side shawl. I love the combination of textured stitches in the body and edging. Photo by Mosaic Yarn Studio

We've got a brand new free pattern for you this week—the Hominy cowl is knit with just one hank of Berroco Macro. This long cowl uses a double-eyelet stitch pattern and can be knit in just a couple of hours.
