Searching for knitting patterns is fine and dandy, but it's always nice to have a tangible book filled with all of your favorites on hand. Chunky Knits: 31 Projects for You & Your Homes Knit with Bulky Yarn by Ashley Little is a book every knitter, regardless of skill level, should have in their library. These are the patterns you can return to again and again without ever having to worry about losing them— unless you lose the book, of course.

There's nothing more comforting than knitting with chunky yarns— especially when the weather outside is less than ideal. No doubt, some of you have skeins upon skeins of yarn with nothing to knit. There's more that can be done with this thick yarn than just knitting warm and cozy scarves to keep you warm during the winter. Have you ever thought to dress your home in cozy knits as well? While some knitters may view these bulkier weight yarns as a cheat, there are still plenty out there who prefer thick and quick knits to the light and more time-consuming ones. There's nothing wrong with the convenience these types of patterns bring. After all, some of us simply don't have the time (or the patience) to sit down and knit with lace all the time.

With Chunky Knits, you can knit everything but the kitchen sink. This guide to bulky knitting patterns range from cozy wearables like hats and cowls to the more homey knits like pillows and ottomans. It also doesn't leave out precious knitted accessories like earrings and purses. Chunky Knits by Ashley Little seriously has everything you could possibly need— or want— to keep you occupied with your beloved bulky weight yarn.

Even if you aren't too confident in your ability to pull off certain knitting techniques, this book is for you. Aside from giving you pattern after pattern of cozy knits, Chunky Knits also doubles as quite the teaching tool for basic knitting techniques. Whether you're looking to learn a new skill or simply need a refresher course on a certain technique, Chunky Knits provides easy-to-follow picture tutorials that knitters of all skill levels can benefit from. With so many wonderful components, there's just no losing!
