FIZZALICIOUS

I couldn’t resist making a 4th Sherbet Fizz in super bulky yarn…

I woke up on a Tuesday dreaming of knitting something in bulky yarn. It’s pretty cold here and big, squishy cosy has much appeal. I had some Knit Collage stashed away I’d purchased with a garment in mind and started to think about all the possibilities when it occurred to me that some of it would be perfect for a Sherbet Fizz shawl! I quickly cast on and couldn’t put it down, especially when I realised I’d be able to knit in a single day! So much fun knitting a super bulky version of this. The pattern is totally adaptable, just choose your yarn, suitable needles and knit until you run out! Sherbet Fizz Shawl pattern blog post here.

To make the most of the yardage I had on hand I changed the minis skeins during the set up rows (as noted below) then worked the lace rows 1 – 16 in the pink full skien. This would also look terrific all knit in one colour.

MODS

SET UP:

Row 1 (RS): K1, yo, k2, pm, k1, pm, k2, yo, k1. (+ 2 sts) 8 sts
Row 2 (WS): K1, yo, k1 kfb, k1, sm, k1, sm, kfb, k1, yo, k1. (+ 4 sts) 12 sts

Then worked a yo inc. for each subsequent kfb, to keep the edge nice & loose.

C1: Set up & rep 3-4 three more times.
C2: Worked 3-4 three times
C3: Worked 3 -4 twice. C4: Worked lace Rows 1 – 16.

Needles: US17/12mm 32″/80 cm. It got a bit squishy at the end but I did manage to fit all the stitches on.

Yarn used: All Knit Collage Yarn; I used 17yd minis for C1, C2 & C3, from a Pop Tart mini sampler kit I had bought. C4: Spun Cloud, full 200g skein. Bodacious pink I didn’t have much left over of colours 1 & 2 (inches) I had a bit more of C3 – maybe just enough for 1 more row – not two. Had 20g left of C4 (from the 200g skien).
