Chunky crochet is suitable for you if:
Say goodbye to ugly granny squares and bad colour combinations, chunky crochet is now stylish! Beautiful fibres, modern designs and on trend colours means that what you make could be found on a runway, or in an interior design magazine.
Yep, you read that right. Chunky crochet isn’t heavy if you use light wood or bamboo crochet hooks. You only have 1 stitch on the go at any time, which means the weight of what you’re making is sitting in your lap, and not being held by your hands.
Big yarn and big stitches create an amazing texture, even with the simplest crochet stitches. Everyone comments on how amazing chunky crochet looks, and you’ll friends will be asking you to make one for them too.
Say goodbye to spending months (or even years) crocheting a blanket, chunky crochet will have you snuggling up in yours in a couple of weeks or days! The big yarn and big hooks mean you make lots of stitches quickly, and you see lots of progress in a short period of time.
This is why I love chunky crochet the most. The soft yarn, beautiful hooks and long rows of stitches means I can slip into a meditative state and just let my arms flow. This is the best way to unwind after a crazy day.
