10 Super Chunky Knitting Patterns You'll Love!Published on 2 February 2022 By Merion 4 min read
We love the speed of knitting a super chunky pattern, so we've gathered up ten of the best to show you - super chunky yarn is a hero for texture, colourwork and speed, and we know how much you love it! From blankets to beanies, there are super chunky patterns for all kinds of garments and accessories, and super chunky yarns at price points to suit them.
1. The Elina Jacket by MillaMia
We love this gorgeously chic jacket knitted in double moss stitch (sometimes known as Irish moss stitch, or simply moss stitch in the US), it's very easy to wear and a great project for adventurous beginners who have mastered knit and purl and are ready for something more complex. MillaMia Naturally Soft Super Chunky is the softest super chunky yarn we've ever seen, and it comes in some beautiful shades - this is a great jacket to grab and go, and a very satisfying knit!
2. Ombre Textured Jumper by Paintbox Yarns
We all love the ombré trend of sliding one colour into another - and here, it's used with gorgeous effect with texture! Working through three variation of moss stitch in contrast shades. Great fun to knit and a really good learning project if you want to brush up your skills. This cool sweater is knitted in Paintbox Yarns Simply Super Chunky, an 100% acrylic super chunky at a great price point!
3. Chunky Dotty Beanies & Scarf by Stephanie Lau
A beanie and scarf set makes a great gift - especially when it knits up fast! This fabulous combo features dot stitch, which really pops in a super chunky yarn, and this pattern uses Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick. Add a faux fur pompom or make your own for a final flourish!
4. Cecily Traditional Sweater Vest by Suzy Rai
Sweet and sassy, this little tank is bang on trend, and looks fabulous over shirts, tees and dresses! It's an easy to follow pattern and a great slipover to make if you haven't made one before. The v neck is easy to create following Suzy's instructions! You can make this in any super chunky yarn that matches the tension, and Rowan Big Wool is a great favourite with lots of fabulous colours!
5. Bubble Stitch Cardigan by Paintbox Yarns
This fantastic free cardigan pattern from Paintbox Yarns always gets a lot of love from our knitting community, and it's such fun to knit! You can choose your colours from 25 shades in Paintbox Yarns Simply Super Chunky, or change it up and add some wool into the acrylic with Paintbox Yarns Wool Mix Super Chunky.
6. Knit Honeycomb Beanie by Crochet by Jennifer
Super chunky yarns make fabulous cables, and this honeycomb cable hat makes the most of that gorgeous stitch definition! This is a great knit to learn honeycomb cabling (we do have a video here, that will help!) and the pattern has two sizes, for child and adult hats, and variations to work it in chunky or super chunky yarn.
7. Jessica Sweater by Rowan
Rowan Big Wool has been a favourite for knitters since the day it was released, and it comes into its own here in the Jessica Sweater, a long line V neck jumper with a dipped hem, perfect for those chilly days when you just don't want to go out! Wear it for work, or over your PJs, it's a soothing knit with gorgeous garter stitch detail!
8. Clapperton by Taiga Hilliard Designs
A triangular shawl makes the most comforting thing to wrap around your shoulders, and in a super chunky yarn, it really does translate into a bear hug! Super fun to knit if you are learning, because you're introducing a little motif with a yarnover, so it's a good project for beginners. Knitted here in Malabrigo Rasta, a heavenly luxury super chunky, but any super chunky yarn will do!
9. Triple Play Scarf by Lion Brand
Let's be honest, there's nothing more satisfying than a giant, cuddly scarf - or in this case, wrap, throw, blanket, afghan - the point is, that super chunky yarn is perfect for blankets and wraps! This is just one of so many fab patterns for Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, which comes in over 30 shades!
10. My First Jumper by Vickyknits
If you're new to knitting and you want a super basic knitting pattern for a jumper, here it is! A simple v neck shape, oversized and gorgeously cosy! You'll be delighted to hear that we've got a video to take you allllll the way through this pattern, so you can follow along with Merion and learn how to knit it!
