Jar Cozies designed by Megan Mannell
The most adorable chunky projects!
Here are just a few of the types of projects you’ll find in the book:
- Hats, scarves and other winter accessories
- Home decor like a knitted pouf, pillow and throw
- Clutches and tote bags
- Boot cuffs
- A versatile knitted top
Honey Comb Throw designed by Ashley Little
The projects make great gifts, too, since the chunky yarn knits up so quickly. (Also, who wouldn’t love a set of, say, those gorgeous jar cozies or this textured throw?)

Cascade Superwash 182
If you’re going for something soft and warm, this yarn is perfect! Plus, it’s superwash so you don’t have to worry about stains. Contributor Nguyen Le designed a beautiful tech case for Chunky Knits using this yarn.
Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick
The versatility of this yarn is obvious when you consider the different projects from the book that use this yarn. From a valance for your window to boot cuffs and even a tote, this super-bulky yarn can tackle any project. Check out the neon colors, too!
Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky
Maria Naslund, designer of the beautiful Melegrana Capelet and Hat, used the superwash version of this yarn to knit both the capelet and a gorgeous hat in a complementary color. The wool offers warmth, while the mohair gives your project a lofty look.
Cascade Magnum Paints
Contributor Brenda Lavell designed a gorgeous cowl for Chunky Knits in a solid-color of this yarn. Because the yarn is so thick, you’ll be able to knit up Brenda’s cowl — or any other project — in no time. The mutli-colored Paints will turn even the plainest knitting stitch into a work of art.
