Thank you for this lovely pattern. I am a big fan of super chunky yarns and I loved this as soon as I saw it.

The pattern is an easy to follow repeat of 4 rows so this is a good one to do whilst watching TV.

Because Rowan Big Wool is expensive, I decided to knit it in Twilleys Freedom Wool, which is suggested as a Big Wool alternative although I hadn't used it before. You don't get the same stitch definition as with Big Wool, the yarn has a softer, fuzzier look. The finished garment is lovely, warm & soft but I prefer working with Big Wool which I find quicker to work with.

Thank you again for this lovely pattern, am enjoying wearing my lovely new cowl!

Sorry, should make it clear - Freedom Wool is the same weight as Big Wool. It was suggested an alternative when Sirdar stopped making Bigga, it was not suggested in this pattern.
