This easy chunky cardigan knitting pattern is made with super bulky yarn so it works up incredibly fast. It’s made in panels for the body, then seamed together and you pick up stitches to work the sleeves. And you finish it off by picking up and adding a ribbed border (with links to an easy to follow tutorial video made specifically for this technique and access to which is only given to pattern users). This chunky knit cardigan pattern also comes with many video links to help clear up any confusion and make this pattern really easy to follow. Pattern can be made in 2 sizes: regular & larger (scroll down for exact measurements)
