Possibly you're looking for "chunky" yarn? It's also referred to as "bulky" or maybe "extra bulky," depending on the maker. Weight class #5 (possibly #6) in the Craft Yarn Council of America weight classification system (see here for a complete table of yarn weights and descriptions).

Chunky or bulky are a number 5 on the yarn scale. (6 is super bulky) There aren't as many as worsted, but still quite a few of them around. What fiber type do you want? Are you looking to purchase in a yarn store or craft store like Michaels, Joannes or Hobby Lobby? Here's a few from both types of stores and there dozens more-

Plymouth Encore Chunky (also comes in tweed and colorspun)
Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky (and others)
Bernat Softee Chunky (and others)
Patons chunky yarns

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
