Regardless of what you call it, extreme knitting is super fun and here to stay! Making easy projects with extreme knitting yarn is ideal for beginners too.
I don’t know about you, but I’m obsessed with the chunky knit blankets popping up everywhere on the internet. A chunky knit kit is definitely on my Christmas list and Madi wants to make one too. In hunting down the best resources to make these fabulous blankets and resources for knitters, I came across so many awesome extreme knitting yarn projects that use the jumbo knit yarn everyone is talking about.
Whether you want to make a chunky knit blanket or want to simply buy jumbo knitting home decor items, this list is perfect for anyone who loves to knit, wants to start extreme knitting, or someone who just loves the look of jumbo knitting items!
Many of these items are already made and would make a great gift for the knitting lover. I did include a couple of items for those who prefer to knit their own. All of these resources are from Etsy, which is the go-to stop for chunky knit products, patterns and resources!
For some reason chunky knit items are easier to find online from European or Canadian sellers, if you’re looking for items as a holiday gift, make sure to buy it asap!
Many of the Etsy sellers do offer gift cards if there’s something you love, but it gets sold out before Christmas or can’t arrive in time.
I highly encourage you to peek around the Etsy seller’s shops included in this round-up. Many of them offer chunky knit patterns if you prefer to make your own 🙂
I’m in love with this hat! Make sure to order it asap since it comes from England! It’s currently a hot, fast selling item on Etsy!
I wish I could track down a pattern for this hat to share!! 🙂
This is the exact same kit I wrote about in my post How to Make a Chunky Knit Blanket in Less Than One Hour. Be sure to read that post if you’re looking for ways to make these hot blankets by arm knitting, using a PVC pipe or buying acrylic yarn instead of US merino wool. Jumbo knitting patterns are super hot right now and this is a knitting project suitable for beginners too!
I’m in love with these needles. If you’re a knitter and even if you don’t end up knitting a chunky knit blanket or other item, I’d personally love to display these in my house in a vintage crock!
