Yes, I absolutely love chunky yarn. It's my favourite.


Loving your chunky loveliness Lucy. Have you tried Colinette prism or Point5? I have some left over from knitting projects. Happy to send you a few bits and bobs if you want to try. Haven't tried crochet with them yet... still learning to hook :)


Oh I love that pattern! It's moogly's right? I've been itching to try her bag pattern for it ;)

Carolyn Jackson

Hi Lucy, I would love you to write down that pattern too, think it looks lovely especially in the colours you have used. Im new to crochet so enjoy any new stitch. Cant wait to see your bag, so many ideas I want to try.Love your blog.

I agree it looks like a larksfoot stitch, here's a good example. Jean http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/45315958@N07/5771478841/

Bree @ meandmy2guys

I think you should call it the space invader pattern ;)

Denise Mc Geown

I just love stylecraft chunky or aran yarn really beautiful to work with :)


Leaping Stripes and Blocks Blanket - I agree with this one. Nice pattern and listed on Ravelry too. I like a thick and chunky yarn too especially for warmer blankets. As always, Lucy, whatever you make - it will be good!

Angela-Southern USA

A lovely pattern( be sure to write it down), I agree with the others,it looks similar to the larksfoot stitch. I think I'd turn my sample into a pair of hand warmers, or a hook caddy. :)It would be nice if the wool companies followed the embroidery thread manufactures with the array of color choices. Btw, I've started a poncho, lol, inspired from you of course. Happy hooking!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Oh I know that pattern!


I love the pattern one of my faveys though it takes a long time...well worth the detail


I am loving your stitch...nice and dense so that there are not any gaps...hope there is a tut for this in the future.

Wendy Rance

Can't wait to see what you make out of this stitch, blankets come to mind. Ooohhh and bag patterns, keep up the good work, you are inspirational Lucy.


Hi! Love this pattern, it's very like the 'leaping blocks' pattern I used for a baby blanket for my son, but it's daintier somehow- I'd love to know how you did it!


I agree, it seems similiar to Larksfoot pattern. Whatever it is, I want to know when you publish it, please! So pretty!!!

I love Sirdar Click Chunky with 30% wool in Verve (110) which I had left over from a jumper, and am using this to practise crochet with a 5mm hook. It's a lovely soft yarn.


Ooh I love chunky yarn and just tried the stylecraft and loved it. Also love James C Brett Chunky with Merino but colours are really limited which is a shame as its snuggly soft! X


I love hunky yarn. Works up so quick which means you can make more things!!! I have used 3 yarn strands together today with a 9mm hook and have been super fast. Soooo much fun. Your tension looks fab on your practice piece. Cannot wait to see your bag. I also made a bag with cluster stitch yesterday but still to blog about that. However if you are interested I have blogged today about using three yarn strands. http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/crocheted-heart-pillows.html?m=1


Your stitch also reminds me a bit of bargello in needlepoint.


Hi Lucy, my favourite chunky/aran is this one from Rooster yarns, http://www.roosteryarns.com/rooster-almerino-aran.html

it works up beautifully. I knitted a jacket for my nephew on knitting 4.5/5mm so the same, depending on your tension, would be ok. Loving the new projects. Karen x


It is like an indented blanket stitch in embroidery. I used to use it for making door stops before I discovered the crochet light.

Susan Dennis

Hi Lucy
Deramores Vintage Chunky is lovely to knit or crochet with a mixture of merino wool and acrylic, and its so soft.x
