I love knitting with chunky yarn! However, if you are a beginner, I would suggest sticking to worsted weight until you become more familiar with knitting. It can be a challenge to knit with at times!

I honestly have not tried this one, but I do have one in the works. It is going to be more of a lapghan (an afghan that's short and basically only covers your lap) for my husband. I'm using very chunky yarn and I have other projects ahead of that one in my Que, but I will get to it someday!
