Bulky Yarn or Chunky Weight Yarn 5

Bulky yarn will help you knit hats, heavy sweaters, jackets, afghans or throws, scarves, and other specialty items quickly. Heavier than worsted weight, it works up quickly and easily for such things as hats, scarves, and throws. Also, it works great when Category 6 and 7 yarns are too bulky for your project.

If you are just now learning to knit or crochet,  this yarn is great for your first projects because the stitches are easy to see and you get fast results.

This size of yarn is also referred to as chunky yarn in the UK and is 12-ply in Australia.

Knit gauge in stockinette is 12-15 stitches in 4 inches on US Size 7-9 knitting needles.
