I have come to appreciate the joy of working with chunky yarns – the main one being that a project crochets up very quickly! The technique I just read about adds yet another dimension to the equation. I like this idea.
You can read more about it here. This is a way to create a faux ribbing which when done with chunky yarn extends each stitch and makes the project come together even that much more quickly. I will probably work one of these up over this next week. They make wonderful gifts this time of year. Right now, we have gotten about 3 inches of snow with up to 4 more expected before morning. Winter wind whips right through me unless I have the protection of one of these warm cowls.
