How to Knit Using Super Bulky Needles

Knitting Tutorial with Bulky Needles

  1. Type of Yarn: While using super bulky needles double up your yarn to help you get that chunky and thick look. 

    To do this, you can get to skeins of the exact same thick bulky yarn and simply put two strands on your needle to double it up. 

  2. Stretch: You can knit just like normal, but everything is a lot bigger. Stretching your hands to warm up before you work on a project like this can really help so that you do not start to cramp up.  

  3. Take breaks or put your project aside: Making sure to either take extended breaks or not work on a single project for too many hours with these giant knitting needles can really help to keep your hands from straining and cramping as well. 

  4. Loosen up: Be careful to not knit too tightly as you continue to work through your pattern. This will help you get that really thick chunky look if that is what you are going for.

I love chunky knits, and bernat blanket yarn is amazing. I'm working a blanket with it in single strand right now. But I'm so in love, I think I'm going to have to make another in double strand like this. Can't wait to try this on big needles!
