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.

Row 1 (RS): K1, yo, k1, pm, k1, pm, k2, yo, k1. (+ 2 sts) 8 sts
Row 2 (WS): K1, yo, k1 kfb, 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.
Picot BO

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).
