What is Chunky Yarn?
Technically chunky yarn is bulky yarn. You can call each one the other, and they are the same thing! Chunky or bulky yarn is considered a weight 5 yarn while super chunky or bulky yarn is a weight 6.
So, next time you see these crochet terms used in patterns you will know what they mean. Below I will have a good mix of chunky and super chunky for you to pick from.
My Favorite Chunky Yarns for These Crochet Hat Patterns
You will notice that in most of the suggested patterns they will call for a thicker yarn that’s either chunky or bulky.
When designing crochet hats that I want to be extra cozy I will usually go for Lion Brand Thick & Quick, Lion Brand Hometown or a comparable yarn in thickness. As long as you use the correct weight thickness as recommended by the pattern you will be good to go.
