Have you ever wanted to knit a blanket in one sitting? Now all of your dreams can come true with Tjockt Fat and Sassy yarns. After scouring the market for huge, fluffy yarn, the Finnish makers of Tjockt (pronounced “chocked”) decided to create their own, to inspire a new generation of yarn crafters. Discovering Tjockt Fat and Sassy is like rediscovering knitting – being able to create a huge blanket in no time at all can revitalize lapsed knitters and inspire non-knitters to take up the craft.

What makes Tjockt so fat and sassy?

Available in 100, 250, 500, and 1000 gram balls, these 100% merino yarns are super soft and pre-felted to guard against shrinkage and pilling. They look and feel great as blankets, cushion covers, huge chunky cowls, and other fluffy and warm winter accessories.

Tjockt Fat and Sassy yarns are spun the old fashioned way, to prevent unraveling and “splitting,” even if you have to pull some stitches out to re-knit them. No matter which size you want, they are all available in a range of shades to complement any home decor.

How much do I need?

Tjockt yarns are so fat and sassy, you only need one 1000 gram pack to make a chic chevron throw blanket. Tjockt has even offered a free pattern to get you started on your fat and sassy journey. Tjockt Fat and Sassy free blanket pattern - download at LoveKnitting

With that same sized ball of yarn, you could make a gorgeously textured cushion cover that you won’t want to leave on your couch. Who needs regular pillows, when you can have fat and sassy pillows?

These projects would be a super quick and fabulous house warming or wedding gift, don’t you think? It certainly avoids the awkwardness of being yet another person to bring a bottle of wine to a housewarming party!

    hi i am interested in your jockt yarn , i am a fashion student and am in the middle of a module, i need the chunky fat wool or yarn of some kind the biggest you stock along with a huge pair of knitting needles what would you suggest please could you also send me some prices along with anything else you may think would be of interest to me regarding the thick chunky wool/yarn
    many thanks for your time

  2. Sally Juras says:

    Wow – so that’s £145 for a cushion cover?? I wish……..

  3. alison middleton says:

    I would love to try Tjockt but no way can I afford the price. It’s yarn I can only dream about………

  4. delilah says:

    its cheaper if you buy it by the 100g ball – 10 balls would be £130 as opposed to £145 for 1000g ball – mmmmm.
    think I will take that embaressing wine to moving in party!!

  5. Dee says:

    ooh, this is truly beautiful, expensive, but beautiful!

  6. Karla Keller says:

    I am intrigued! I think the price is fair considering I spend 70-80 on something for a sweater. 3 stitches to the inch? I can do something with this! I just need to decide on a color.

  7. Carol Richards says:

    I am hyper-allergic to wool. What can I use to knit the CHUNKY COWL? LOVE your patterns.

  8. Sara McDaniel says:

    I love this yarn and wanted to make a blanket for my college daughter in her university colors. But I think I’ll need to double the amount of the throw and order 4 of the largest balls – and have never used 25mm needles. Am an addi fan. Any advice or links to others using this chunky yarn for the first time? Or advice on the type of needles to purchase? I typically use circular needles because I find it easier even for blankets. Just a little lost. I’m the only knitter of my friends. Atlanta, Ga. Thank you for your time! Sara
