I have created the worlds largest Booga.
After making two Boogas following the original pattern and being disappointed in the small size, I thought I’d try one by increasing the pattern by half. I cast on 50 stitches and knit back and forth for 50 rows. Then I picked up 100 extra stitches around my rectangle and then knit in the round for 100 rows and now I have a Booga that measures…
21 inches tall and 22 inches wide (before felting, of course)!!! It is absolutely freaking huge. If I hold it up to my waist, it comes down past my knees, and I’m 5’4".
I wonder how much smaller it will get after it is felted? It is just ridiculous how big this thing is right now. I probably used about 6 skeins of Noro Kureyon color 134 and I haven’t even done the i-cord yet.
I’ll post pics after felting, but it might be a few days. I have to use my friend’s washer as mine is a front loader and won’t felt anything.
