Little Dandelion’s K1S1 is the yarn of giants. With proportionately immense needles, standing next to these materials made me feel as if I had shrunk down to a pocket-sized version of myself. But as I felt smaller, my curiosity grew bigger.

It was with the grace of a toddler walking in her mom’s high heels that I cast on the mere 24 stitches needed for this enormous blanket. But just a few rows later, I was cruising along, already mournful of how soon it would be over.

K1S1 is 100% merino wool and is as outrageously soft as it is big. Cushiony and wonderful to touch, I loved that knitting with this yarn also ensconced me in it. A full body experience, be prepared for the coziest workout you’ve ever had!
