Yarn Question

Does anyone here know of a yarn that’s slightly thicker than Red Heart Super Saver?? I’ve got a pattern for an Aran afghan and I want to use an acrylic yarn, either a thick #4 or a thin #5.

Any ideas???

Hi, knitcindy.

I am a very new knitter (only 2 months) but I found this yarn to be very soft and easy to knit up.

Purl Essence by Rainbow Classics. It’s 100% acrylic, very soft, listed as a “bulky 5”. Of course, the needle size you choose will make a difference. I tend to use a smaller size than suggested, so it’s nice and “spring-y”

Hope this helps.

RHSS is listed as 17sts/4inches on Ravelry and RH with Love lists at 16sts/4inches. That’s close and probably just depends on your tension and needle size.
