Katia Ushuaia




I recently decided to try out this new super bulky yarn that we got into shop, Katia Ushuaia. I decided to knit up the free pattern that Katia put out, the 7-41 Cowl. I knit it up using US 15 - 10.0 mm needles, and it took 1.33 skeins. We got in every color of Katia Ushuaia and I wanted to see how it knitted up. The free pattern is here as PDF.


This is a fun thick & thin yarn to work with. And I just love this color way (color number 603).


You can find my project on Ravelry here.

I love the colors, and the bulky yarn would be a quick knit.

Trouble! As I knit, this yarn twists tighter and tighter until it is in a twisted mess. I know I'm doing something wrong and it's not the yarn. What should I do to avoid this twisting? I'm about to get into the second ball. What should I do differently?

I would have to see what you're doing when you are working with the yarn. I don't have a way to contact you - are you local in Montreal? If so, if you want to come by the shop, we can take a look at what you are doing when knitting with the yarn.

Thanks & happy knitting,
