This project can be done with less expensive yarn. If the jumbo specialty yarn is out of your budget, simply replace each strand of jumbo yarn with 2-3 strands of a super bulky yarn that you buy in your craft or local yarn store. When switching yarns, just knit a swatch that is 7 stitches by 7 rows and see if you match the stated gauge, increase or decrease the number of strands accordingly.
