Chunky yarn offers instant gratification, the ultimate quick knit and ideal for that weekend project. Heavier than Aran but not too bulky. Thick and fast to work with, you’re next project will be finished in no time. Many find it easy to work with, as the needles are large and the yarn is easy to hold on to. This makes chunky weight yarn perfect for beginners and the more impatient crafters out there. Also known as bulky or 12 ply, chunky yarns are great for larger projects like blankets, throws and oversized garments. I recommend 6 – 8mm needles and hooks, but always check your pattern.
