The Chunky Sweater is the perfect oversized sweater. Its timeless and comfy design makes it essential for everyone. It's one of those knitting projects where there's not much time between the first stitches until the project is off the needles again.

Procedure:

The Chunky Sweater is worked from the top down. First, the back piece is formed, then the shoulders are shaped by knitting increases, leading to the front piece. After that, the back piece and front piece are joined, and the body is knitted. Finally, the sleeves are knitted, and all ends are woven in. There are videoguides throughout the pattern.

Size Guide: This sweater should have a range of motion of approximately 45-55 cm relative to your chest measurement, depending on how oversized you desire. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL correspond to a chest measurement taken on your own body of 85-90 (90-95) 95-100 (100-105) 105-110 (110-115) 115-120 (120-125) 125-130 cm [33.46-35.43 (35.43-37.4) 37.4-39.37 (39.37-41.34) 41.34-43.31 (43.31-45.28) 45.28-47.24 (47.24-49.21) 49.21-51.18 inch]. Measure yourself before you start knitting to assess which size fits you best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35.43 inch] around the widest part of your chest, you should knit in size XS, which has a chest width of 138 cm m [54.33 inch], creating a range of motion of 48 cm [18.90 inch].
