The 7 Best Chunky Yarns
Regardless of what time of year it is, it's always fun to work with chunky yarn. Bulky yarn allows you to start and finish a project fairly quickly because not only is the yarn thick, but you're working with a larger hook as well. When trying to find the best chunky yarn there is, I wasn't surprised at what I found. From popular yarn companies like Red Heart, Lion Brand, Yarnspirations and Premier there is always a bulky weight yarn worth making a crochet pattern with. Bulky yarns are great for crochet hats, scarves, mittens, afghans, and even a few year-round items like baby booties or blankies. Below you will find the best of the best chunky yarns you must add to your yarn collection. After all, you can never have too much yarn!
