Phildar Phil Express is a super chunky yarn made of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. The yarn feels light and has an airy, twisted structure. Used together with needles no. 10-12, it is easy to knit or crochet a snood, a warm scarf or a beautiful sweater! However, our editor's favourite is this sturdy pillow knitted in moss stitch. This pattern is very suitable for the less experienced knitters among us and using a super chunky yarn yields a quick result. Do you know how to make knit and purl stitches? Then you can do this too!
