You probably know that I love designing with giant, chunky yarns. The outsized stitches are so fun and bold, and make a project quick to knit as well! I made the Moon & the Mountain using a draping, soft, chunky Merino yarn - Cloudborn Superwash Merino Bulky. It's great for the chilly weather we've been having here, and would make a perfect gift knit too!
It's worked from the top-down, so the rows just get quicker the more you knit! And the geometric striping pattern is done using the Intarsia method - just twist your colors around each other when you switch. (It's surprisingly simple to do, and this is a great first-Intarsia project.)
