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!
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!
This is adorable, Anne! And you look amazing in these photos as well, my friend. 🙂
Thanks so much Heidi! Ack! Always hard for me to model, but I love how the sweater turned out! xo

How do I get the pattern??
Hi Katherine, I’m sorry if the post was confusing. I just added the link a few more times to the first paragraph to try to make it more clear.
Hi! Was hoping to make this sweater and was wondering if you have any suggestions as to other yarn that might be suitable/what to look for brand/size wise? I’m shopping at Michael’s! Thanks so much.
Beginner sweater-knitter here–if I wanted to make the V neck a bit higher, how would I adjust my knitting for that? Thanks!
Hi Janel, Wait a little further in the length before you start your v. Then, decrease your stitches faster (and evenly) across the remaining inches desired for the depth of the V.
Is the pattern still available?
Hi There, it is, please email me at flaxandtwine at gmail, and I’ll email it to you.
Hi – can this pattern still be accessed? It’s coming up with a page not found on the links.
HI Elizabeth. IF you email me at flaxandtwine at gmail, I will send it to you. Anne
