It is important to choose the right yarn for this project and to match gauge. The yarn is slightly more chunky than an average bulky, but much less chunky than a superbulky.
It works well in DB chunky yarns on 7mm needles, but you may need to alter needles to match the gauge.

If you want to knit a similar design in a less bulky yarn see the Faolán pattern also available from Erssie Knits and designed for Knit Picks yarns and their website.
