Chunky Knitting Patterns
February is a month when you need to wear your warmest knit sweaters and hats everywhere you go!
I can't go anywhere without an oversize knit, warm knitted hat and furry lined boots. Chunky knits are just the best for the winter months.
If you are a beginner knitter or have been doing it for years, there are many reasons for you to pick up those needles if you haven't tried it already.
Learning how to knit might not be at the top of your to-do list, but you should definitely try it out. It's not just for old ladies these days - everyone is doing it, even that guy on the NY subway!
Knitting can give you an enormous sense of pride because not a lot of people know how to knit.
You can show off something you have made and you will see them get excited and claim in disbelief that they don't know how you managed it.
They will see your newly found skills as something to be proud of and you will surely receive many compliments and requests for hats, scarves and other items.
*Don't forget to pin and share!*
The patterns in this post are just a small taste of what you can create with your knitting skills, if you want to see a wider range of projects, take a look at my knitting pattern library, with patterns for women, men, baby, kids, pets and the home.
In this free chunky knitting pattern roundup, you will see some classic techniques used in the projects below.
If you are a beginner, practice your skills by making simple knit hats or a cowl, or get creative with more advanced patterns, like the fingerless gloves.
The patterns below will walk you through - step by step from beginning to end, so grab your needles and get started!
