About the Yarn

What to make with Darn Good Yarn Punky Chunky super bulky yarn

I used Darn Good Yarn’s chunky up-cycled yarn to knit this quick and easy headband. The yarn is called “Punky Chunky” and is made with hand-spun recycled silk. As soon as I saw it, I knew this happy, sparkly rainbow yarn would make a perfect messy bun hat. It is warm, cozy, and colorful: the perfect combination to keep the winter blues at bay. I knit one in white, purple, and turquoise; all three colors are bright, cheerful, and vibrant. The super-bulky weight yarn lets you create a finished project really quickly.

About the Pattern

Darn Cute Ear Warmer headband/messy bun hat knitting pattern

Because Punky Chunky is super-bulky, it makes this Darn Cute Ear Warmer knitting pattern work up in a flash. If you’re an experienced knitter, it can be crafted in just a few hours. And if you are new to knitting, you can make this Darn Cute Ear Warmer too; you’ll only need to know the basic knit and purl stitches to create this headband. Darn Good Yarn has published the pattern here, where you can download and print it for your collection. You can also order the kit, which comes with the pattern and one ball of yarn. You can make this headband with just one full ball of yarn, but do keep in mind the headband uses the entire ball of yarn. Depending on your preferences, you might want to order an extra ball of yarn; if you don’t like to unravel and reuse your gauge swatches, you’ll need the extra ball of yarn to make up the difference.
