Copper Cropper Chunky Handknit Sweater Easy Free Pattern and Video

A chunky handknit sweater is a must-have piece for your fall wardrobe, so I’m really excited to share my latest design with you. The Copper Cropper Easy Chunky Sweater Pattern is my latest collaboration with Yarnspirations. The pattern and step-by-step video are free and available now! In the video, I show you exactly how to knit this beautiful and easy sweater. It’s a perfect first-time sweater, and so fast!

Ribbed neckline detail

If you’re like me, you’ve started searching for cute cropped tops and sweaters to wear this season with your high-waisted jeans. The sweater has very little shaping and since it’s so chunky, you’ll go from casting on to having a finished sweater in just a couple of days. I love the simple detail along the neck. It doesn’t require any additional ribbing!

The Copper Cropper is made from the soft and squishy Sugar Bush Chill Superfine Merino yarn. This next-to-skin soft super bulky yarn is luscious and there are so many gorgeous color choices. I chose Copper for my sweater. You’re not going to want to take it off until spring! This yarn would also be perfect for my Chunky Arm Knit Ribbed Blanket pattern.

Until Oct. 31, you can use the code CROPPER20 to receive 20% off of your yarn purchase.

Whether you’re a seasoned sweater knitter or you’re ready to cast on for your first one – this is the sweater you’ve been looking for! The video will walk you through every step so you can feel confident from start to finish. It includes the neck decreases, the sleeve increases, and how to seam it all together. If you’re a newer sweater knitter, learning the techniques is a breeze with the chunky yarn! You’ll feel ready and confident to cast on another sweater once you finish.

I hope you love knitting and wearing your Copper Cropper chunky handknit sweater. Tag photos of your sweaters #coppercropper so I can see your beautiful creations!
