Make Big Stitches Your Friend

Like many knitters & crocheters, when August rolls around, I'm already thinking about what to make for fall. Taking a cue from designer/model Mandy Coon--whose fall collection includes oversized, bold, stockinette stitch arm warmers (left) and scarves--I thought it might be fun to make some oversized items that are quick to knit or crochet up!

I took a quick browse through the Lion Brand Pattern Finder to pull up some oversized patterns for inspiration.

Here's a list of just a few of the patterns that I found (Click the highlighted text to see the pattern on LionBrand.com; must be logged into LionBrand.com to view patterns):

As you can see, with just a couple of strands of yarn held together and worked as one strand, you can get a totally graphic look out of even the most basic stitches.

Via The Cut.

Have you experimented with multiple strands of yarn? What do you think of big, bold statement pieces like this?
