    I got this to knit a hat for a friend. There are some good things about this yarn - it is soft, comes in many pretty colors, inexpensive... BUT it does not work for hats - or this pattern anyway - There is no stretch so my hat is coming out HUGE and more like a bowl that sits on your head than the warm snuggly hat I wanted to hug your head. Disappointed.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

                  The colors were nice, the price was good, but I wasn't happy with the plastic/acrylic feel while knitting. The yarn was more worsted weight than chunky, although that varied by color. The gray and yellow were between a heavy worsted and a chunky weight, while the while felt more worsted weight.

                        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

                        I bought this yarn in Meadow Heather to make an adult sized throw. Despite ordering six or seven skeins, I'm worried I won't have enough. I suppose I should have paid more attention to the gauge size, but the yarn arrived to be less chunky than expected, and not as soft to boot. Nevertheless, the color is beautiful, and I hope that I can find a way to make the yarn last long enough to complete it.
