I am so excited to finally release a super chunky crochet project pattern!
Since I found the super trendy jumbo yarn and the also very trendy bulky throws made with the jumbo yarns, but, as much as I loved those throws and blankets, I really wanted to make something wearable.
Making something wearable with jumbo yarns can be a bit of a challenge. It can be done but is limiting. There are certain things that just won’t look that good with jumbo or chunky yarn.
I finally decided on some sort of jacket. So it will be a good combination for this yarn. Some jackets are meant to be bulky, and the warmth and coziness of this wool is a great feature to have on a jacket. Anway, long story, short I came up with the chunky chunky cardi.
The size of each stitch is HUGE, which creates a very unique texture and look!
Besides the unique look, the other feature I love about the cardi is how it feels. It feels like you are wearing a hug, so cozy!
Chunky Chunky Cardi
This super chunky cardigan, is a cozy hug of wooly softness that will keep you warm during winter.
Presenting a mix of relaxed, yet luxurious look, this cardi is sure to provide the comfort you need and the styling you want in your wardrobe.
It’s easy construction doesn’t call for any increases or decreases. You simply start with a rectangle, that is then stitched together before continuing to add some easy cuffs, to
add a bit of shape to the oversized nature of this cardi.
