    Chunky yarn can be used to make items that are trendy, fun, casual, and beautiful—and they don’t have to be for winter! Tabetha Hedrick has designed this collection to include not only warm hats, scarves, and cowls, but also short-sleeve pullovers, vests, and shawls that are versatile enough to wear year-round. You get all of the joy of fast knitting with bulky and super bulky yarn, plus beautiful texture, stunning color, and delightfully fun projects.

    Projects range from easy to intermediate in skill level, and because of the large gauge they knit up quickly and are perfect projects to try out a new stitch or technique.
