The Best Chunky Yarn for Knitting, Weaving, Crocheting, and More

If you love to knit but are always short on time, make bulky yarns your go-to material. These are faster to work up than light worsted yarns, simply since they take up so much space. When shopping, look for yarns rated 5 on the standard yarn weight system, or if you want super-bulky yarns, go with 6. Super-chunky ones can even be “knit” together with your arms alone. Get started with your next giant project with our picks below, which cover a range of textile types.
