This is an intermediate pattern, but contains a lot of repeats, so it may be easier to crochet than you think! I have used Caron Sprinkle Cakes -- a super bulky yarn -- so the cardigan works up quickly. (It took me 4 days to crochet it, and I was writing the pattern down as I went.)

The pattern is written for an XL/2X, but I have included the necessary adjustments for sizes XS-4X…however, since this yarn is super bulky, the smaller sizes may not look as good as the larger sizes. The weight of the yarn does not really lend itself to sizes smaller than medium.

I used 5 full cakes for the entirety of the cardigan with the exception of the pockets. I used less than 1/4 of the 6th cake for the pockets.
