On this episode of The Knit Show with Vickie Howell we bow down to big knits — chunky, quick-to-make projects knit in the most decadent of bulky yarns.

We’re in the studio with Oejong Kim, one half of the dynamic duo that owns the hottest, large-scale focused yarn company in the market, Loopy Mango. Oejong shares the story of how a Korean and Russian-born pair met in New York and launched their dream project together. She also shows how to knit the graphic stitch pattern used to make the Aster Flower Scarf.

Our studio break takes us on a field trip to the Seattle, Washington area to visit the headquarters of high-end needle, yarn and notions wholesaler, Skacel. We visit the warehouse, check out their latest products, and meet founder Ingrid Skacel and her CEO daughter, Karin Skacel who share what it’s like to run a company in an industry ironically dominated by male figureheads.
We end the episode with a Vic’s Tip on ways to successfully weave in ends in bulky, big knit and crochet projects.
