See What Extreme Chunky Crochet Can Do

There is a new crochet technique that is gaining popularity, and I think I am about to become a big fan. Chunky crochet makes statement. You can crochet with t-shirt yarn, cord, chunky yarn, and create home decor pieces, accessories, and more.

I have my eye on the Hexie Rug (below). This crocheted rug is worked in t-shirt yarn, and the different colored hexagon motifs are so beautifully eye-catching. Yes, chunky crochet is definitely in my future.

Here’s designer Sarah Shrimpton to convince you to pull out your large hooks and chunky fiber.

Extreme Crochet with Chunky Yarn

Extreme crochet. It’s not for the faint-hearted. Imagine the biggest hooks, the chunkiest yarns and some stuff that’s not even yarn at all, and you’re on the right track. Extreme crochet is fun and addictive, quirky and thought-provoking—and immensely satisfying. It’s about thinking outside the (yarn) box. Choose chunky, high-loft woolen yarns, or fabric and T-shirt yarns, string, rope, washing line, or even make your own. If it’s long and cord-like, then you can probably crochet with it.

So what can you do with extreme crochet? My answer dear reader, is anything you like. It’s perfect for maxing out the classics: want a cushion? Super-size it with big yarn. A blanket? Whip up one in a day with mega wool. A necklace? Walk on the wild side with T-shirt yarn. Extreme crochet doesn’t have to mean that everything you make is massive, just that everything you make is awesome.

Seriously, the sky’s the limit.

This book with initiate you into the world of extreme crochet. It’ll show you how to work with a variety of traditional and contemporary materials, alongside a whole range of big hooks to create beautiful homewares and fashion accessories.

If you’re up for a challenge, then extreme crochet is up for you.
