Maine draft stopper
Scenic Turnout yarn is not in Ravelry’s database. It’s my own yarn. Any bulky or super bulky will do.
This is a great project for beginning hand spinners! The draft stopper is knit really tight on the 10 1/2 needle so the balsam needles don’t fall out (and they don’t!) Lumpy bumpy and slubby nubbly yarns are a-okay here!
Sorry - this pattern is no longer available online, but here’s the quick and dirty version:
Super Bulky yarn (approx 2.5 sts per inch) CO 20 sts on DPs & k in round for 36”. Sew one end. Fill w/ balsam and small rocks (for weight). Sew other end. That’s it.
Wanna get fancy? Do a provisional cast on and don’t cast off. Kitchener stitch the beginning and end. Make fatter or thinner or longer or narrower. This is one heckuva easy pattern! Cheers!
