There are lots of tricky ways to finish your knitting faster. You can knit with bulky yarn and big needles, of course, but one method that’s often overlooked is knitting with two strands at the same time.
Knitting with two strands of yarn at the same time creates a knit that’s thick and warm. It’s also a great technique to try when your pattern calls for a bulky yarn, but all you have is worsted weight. Put those two worsted weight yarns together and you might just get the gauge of a bulky yarn!
