Muhku is a Finnish slang word to describe chunky, bulky, voluminous… just what this cardigan is.

With big needles and thick yarn this cardigan is quickly done. It’s worked top down without any seams. The details are simple, yet showy cables all around the neckline and hem as well as the cuffs. The neckline is really deep and the cardigan is closed with three big buttons.
