Anyone know of a comparable yarn to Biggy Print by Rowan? I'm looking for a super, super chunky yarn to make a scarf and am looking for something that might be a bit cheaper in price.

Thanks!

I have found that Red Heart :hiding: makes a super chunky yarn called Bright & Lofty--works up very quickly on big needles and a makes a cool looking scarf (I made several as quick gifts-great colors and washable.) Yes, its a manmade fiber and a bit squeaky but its very fast working.

Maybe something from brown sheep burly spun, the have a bulky yarn that runs about the same price as rowan but the burly spun has about an extra hundred yards. Hope it helps.

Plymouth Encore Mega has a listed gauge of 2 sts to the inch on 15s. It's big!

Don't overlook the possibility of double stranding (http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/189).
