I am pleased with the results! The Karate Jacket is next....
For my evening shell, I used Cascade Magnum, which is a very soft and lofty yarn. It is very similar to Twinkle Soft Chunky and is an less expensive, and also an excellent substitute. The color is called Celery. I see as more like a light 'Peridot', which is my birthstone. It is a heathered yarn which includes turquoise blue and soft yellow shades throughout. These photos are pre-blocking.

Here is my beret in Twinkle Soft Chunky - Almond. I knitted this in less than 2 hours. This is definitely a great last minute gift. It will be on my Xmas gift giving list this year. For a change of pace, I think I will try it again using a different yarn.

This year I am really into chunky knits. This is Twinkle's Urchin Beret done in Twinkle's Soft Chunky. The color is 27-Urchin, which is grey with a blue cast. It is an unusual, but sophisticated, neutral option that will go with everything. I really love this hat more than I anticipated. The pattern is very simple and the results are perfect. I will make this hat again.
Needles: DPN US 17 and US 19
- Cast on with Size 19
- 4 rows of ribbing completed on Size 17
- Remainder of hat completed on Size 19
- Pay close attention to gauge. The hat has the potential to be too large
Twinkle's designs are versatile and somewhat timeless. I love the instant gratification that super bulky yarn offers. Soft Chunky is a beautiful yarn that I cannot get enough of. Its hard to find, but it is well worth it and it is a great addition to the stash.
I am just getting my feet wet. I have tee'd up several Twinkle projects. I just received my Twinkle's Town & Country Knits. I got it for a great price on EBay. I would like to tackle one of the sweater patterns next. Picking a color is not easy. I want them all!

- Cast on 39
- Slip stitch purlwise at each end on 2nd row or stripe pattern. Do not pull slip stitches too tightly. Make sure that there is relatively equal tension on each side. One side is more rigid than the other, so I had to make sure that the length stitches on the opposite side matched.
- Wet Blocking produces fabulous results with this yarn. SilkGarden is a thick and thin yarn. It smooths out the edges and uneven stitches.
