What is your favorite chunky wool pattern. I have a little on my hands, and I have decided against doing the pattern I was thinking of....

Any suggestions...

I would prefer not hats or scarves

I made a modified version of Dill from the Rowan NewShapes booklet. Knit on 10.5 needles. Are you looking for an even chunkier knit? If so, look at some of the patterns in Twinkle's Big City Knits. I made the Best Friend Cardigan and Groovy Sweater Dress. Knit on size 19 needles.

If it's 100% wool you could make a felted box from the Mason Dixon book. The large box calls for 3 skeins of bulky yarn if I recall right. Here's mine :http://www.ravelry.com/projects/newamy/felted-box

both of them would be not real wool....

One is Patons Rumor, and the other is Lion Brand Homespun....

That is two separate thoughts....I wasn't thinking of using them for the same project.....

I see you are a member of Ravelry, I think your best bet is to put in the yarn you have and look at what other people have made with that yarn.
