I was shopping for some yarn at Micheal's
for a couple of orders and walked past the
on an end cap.
I have to say I was not impressed at first glance.
They were interesting, but not practical to me.
I then saw the Lexington yarns.
They were big, fat chunky yarns and very, very soft.
I do love the chunky yarns
This one caught my eye with all the bright colors
and random blotches of colors.
It is called Stuyvesant
I really enjoyed working with this yarn.
I found it chunky and thick, but not difficult to crochet with.
Some chunky yarns tend to get to thick and stiff when crocheted,
This one did not do that.
So decided to make a cowl from this thick chunky yarn
and am very pleased with the outcome.
I also, Found the cowl to be comfortable, not bulky.
It felt light to wear, while still being thick and warm.
