7 Chunky Yarn Crochet Patterns for Quick Weekend Projects

There are so many reasons to love chunky yarns. They're cozy, comfy, and they work up way faster than other yarn weights. Plus, they offer a chance for us to use our often-neglected larger crochet hooks . (Hellooooo, L hook!)

Chunky yarns work for all kinds of different projects, from home decor to accessories and even garments. When a yarn works up as quickly as chunky yarn, you have time to experiment with all kinds of patterns!

Dig that bulky yarn you've been saving out of your stash — or buy one you've been eyeing — and use it to work up one of these fun chunky yarn crochet patterns!
