Knit Your Own Chunky Knits
If you are a knitter it’s a great time to grab your favorite chunky yarn and your giant needles and make a warm chunky sweater.
You can knit whatever your heart desires from home decor items like chunky blankets and accessories like snoods, cowls, and scarves.
Chunky knits are great for beginner knitters as it’s a lot easier to work with a super bulky yarn weight than a lightweight one.
It’s easier to grip and spot the mistakes you might have made in your work.
If you are a complete newbie and want to make your own chunky knit with texture, it is better to start with a chunky hand knit blanket, as a garment might be a bit complicated.
What Makes A Chunky Knit Chunky?
The yarn’s thickness.
Talking about yarn weights has to do more with how thick they are than how much they weigh.
So the thicker the yarn you will choose the chunkier your knitted fabric will be.
