Hello!

Welcome to The Chunky Needle.  My name is Courtney and I'm the one holding those very chunky needles!  I've been chunky knitting for around 15 years.  I started with knitting very long chunky scarves and have grown to love knitting super chunky blankets and homeware.  Chunky knitting appeals to me as the finished product is so unusual and dramatic.  Friends and family always ask, "where in the world did you get that?!  I want one too!"  The process takes less time than conventional knitting, so results can be seen quickly, and who doesn't want that?!  Working with unspun merino wool is a dream as it's so incredibly soft and tactile and the colour range is vast.  The whole process is actually quite hypnotic.

I started The Chunky Needle as I loved the look, colour, texture and aesthetic that chunky knits can bring to a room.  This latest trend inspired me to pick up my needles and as it turns out, knitting is like getting back on a bike; I picked up my chunky needles and I knitted away without looking back! 

I hope you'll love your Chunky Needle knit as much as I enjoy making them.
