Made specifically for use with SMOOSH Yarn and patterns.
A fun, fast, and fantastic knit...you can create a giant, super chunky blanket in a weekend.
Why straights and not circulars?....these are perfect for large scale knitting..when the knitting begins to grow and gets heavier (and this happens quickly) the weight of the knit piece exerts a downward pull on the stitches, and if they are on a cable like a circular needle, they can stretch from the weight and lose their gauge...the smooth surface of the waxed wooden needles allows the stitches to slide easy, retain their loft and softness. We knit our queen size SMOOSH blankets on these....(the 120's)...the length is long enough to hold the stitches, and short enough to knit comfortably in a chair.

Large scale knitting is extremely moveable. All sizing is done laid flat, not stretched. Due to the nature of the fabric, the sizing is very changeable and can vary... Each item is measured before shipping and will be at least the size advertised, but can 'grow' with use.
My product is a spun yarn, not the plain wool roving you can find other places, which provides strength, durability and 95% less shedding... And is lighter. My process allows for the same giant size, but eliminates the problems with using roving ... Roving breaks and tears, sheds like crazy and creates a very heavy Item! SMOOSH yarn is giant, airy, light and easy to work with!
We recommend our giant size 120 needles for best results with our yarn. Anything smaller such US size 50's and below will create a more dense heavier fabric, and require more yarn.
SMOOSH blankets are made with our SMOOSH yarn, and not plain raw wool roving seen in other shops or websites. The process we use to create our yarn provides strength, durability, and reduces shedding and tearing by 95% ... Using this yarn to create our SMOOSH blankets means your blanket will be lighter, fluffier and softer than any other!
Our pattern booklet (in English ) is provided with all knit kits and yarn purchase. It includes 5 style blanket patterns, and 2-3 small project bonus patterns. It also has some tips and tricks for large scale knitting and sizing details with cast on information. It is not a basic knitting tutorial however, and some basic knitting knowledge, while not needed, is helpful. All patterns are beginner level and require only basic knowledge of cast on, knit and purl techniques.
