What size needles do I need for chunky wool?

A pattern using chunky wool will generally need large needles. Around 7 – 8 mm is average, while 5.5 – 6 mm will give you a tighter fabric. Super chunky wool, which is ideal for making a very thick blanket, will need even bigger needles.

Is knitting easier with bigger needles?

With big needles, it gets harder. The diameter of your needles is so big and you have so much more surface area. The result is more friction between needles and yarn. If you knit tight you’ll have to really muscle those stitches around.
