Super chunky yarn can be tricky to get hold of, but our buyer’s guide should help you track down the elusive mega wool
Beautiful and so quick to knit, super chunky yarn has so many things going for it. Inspired by arm knitting (check out our guide to arm knitting here), we went hunting for super chunky yarn.
The really mega giant chunky yarn is lovely but on the pricey side, so we’ve also included super chunky yarn that can be held double or treble to achieve a similar look. Size 25 needles at the ready!
