So it is natural that I love; what I have discovered is called a novelty yarn, but I call thick n thin yarn.
I had a skein of hand spun thick n thin yarn from Frost Yarns. Nicole Frost is a beast with the fiber, please check her out. Anyway I grabbed the yarn to make a shawl and I tagged her on Instagram. I wanted her to see her fabulous work. I told her how much I love thick n thin yarn. She shocked me when she said folks don’t buy it so she stopped spinning it
I mean it’s built in texture, it’s fat and skinny at the same damn time! What is there not to love.
When using this fabulous yarn type, garter stitch comes to life in my opinion. There is no need for stitch combinations, just knit and watch the magic.
I did some research and this yarn is called “slubby ” yarn. Slubby yarn is any yarn that has dramatic changes in thickness throughout the length of the strand. That change in thickness is the yummy part, the part that makes your project unique.
