Chunky Pullover

I don’t know how many times I’ve been to Michaels and walked by these Caron Tea Cakes. Every time I go, I stop and look at the pretty colors and pick one up and give it a squeeze before I reluctantly put it back. I could never think of anything to make with them outside of a blanket due to its chunky nature, but, after how abnormally cold it’s been here since December, I decided to pick up 4 and see if I could come up with a sweater of some sort that would keep me cozy without feeling absorbed in the weight. After a little math and a few go’s at it, this is my final result and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

⁃ Approximately 600(640, 680, 720)Yards Super Bulky Yarn. (Caron Tea Cakes was used in sample)

• Row 3: Repeat Row 2 until you have 9(10, 11, 12) rows total.

Flip pullover inside out so you’re working with Wrong Sides together.

To join front and back, starting at the outside edge, using the mattress stitch, seam your front and back together along the top edge on each side, leaving desired gap for neckline.

This is where you can get creative! You can leave a wider hole for the modern off-one shoulder look, or a smaller hole for a more traditional pullover look!

Flip pullover right side out.

Sleeves:

Work same for both sleeves.

Join yarn at the underarm area of arm hole.

• Round 1: Ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) evenly around entire sleeve edge, join to ch-1 space. (I did 12 repeats)

• Round 29(30, 30, 31): Ch 1, sc in same ch-1 space, sc in each ch-1 space around, join.

• Round 30(31, 31, 32): Ch 1, sc in same and each st around, join.

Fasten off.

Join yarn at the base of your pullover, sc in each st around, join. Repeat. Fasten off.

There you have it! A super quick and super squishy pullover so those extra cold winter days!

Stay Inspired!
