6. Stippers knitting pattern by Ashley Knowlton

Slippers are another wonderful chunky knit. If you live somewhere with cold hardwood floors, it can feel like your toes will be numb until spring. Stippers by Ashley Knowlton are a simple and attractive choice. The braided cable at the ankle looks lovely, and the rest of the foot is simple and beautiful. To keep yourself from sliding around, you can add a Bergere de France sew-on sole or use a spray-on rubber coating for a non-leather option.

7. Matrimonial Afghan knitting pattern by Varina Jones

If you’re the sort of person who normally thinks blankets are too time-consuming to make, a great option is to use a pattern that calls for chunky or super chunky yarn, so you get tons of warmth and a much quicker finish. Matrimonial Afghan by Varina Jones using Stylecraft Special Chunky is one fantastic option. The directional squares and stitch pattern make for an interesting knit, but the larger gauge means you’ll be done in no time.
