Is it easier to crochet with thick yarn?

Is it Easier to Work with Chunky Yarn? It can be easier for beginners to work with chunky yarn, and to learn to crochet on a bulkier yarn. This is because the yarn is easier to handle, and the stitches are easier to see. Because stitches are so large, the project can be finished more quickly, as well.

Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?

If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
