I usually knit with DK, but I tried Bulky and Super Bulky this season. I was pleasantly surprised! It feels so much more solid and cozy, I do understand why it's been so popular lately. I've been researching jumbo yarn, and looking for the right one to make a big floor pouf or blanket. After watching an instructional video by Broadwick Fibers, I learned that there are different levels of quality, and you want something that is spun together.
In the meantime, I'll keep trying Bulky yarn here and there. I made this simple headband by double crocheting three straight rows a little longer than the circumference of my head. Then I sewed on a button. Because of the looser weave, the result is adjustable to different head sizes. You just use the space between stitches as a button hole. The flower is a little antique white lacy design that contrasts with the bulky yarn.
This is my friend Batool modeling the one I made for her. She said it's been really helping keep her ears warm in the awful weather we've been having!
