Chunky Boyfriend Cardigan


This beautiful cardigan will see you through from early Autumn to late Spring.  Made of supersoft Plump Superchunky yarn it has all the benefits of a chunky knit, but is floaty and light so doesn’t weigh you down.   Perfect to throw on when there is a chill in the air, or layer up with when it’s freezing!  

The sizes are really generous – you don’t need to go up a size to get the baggy look – the size shown is a S/M and fits me (I’m 5’10” and medium build).  The large would be far too big.  The pattern shows you where you can shorten/lengthen to get the exact fit you want. 

Sizes: S/M (M/L) 

Finished Measurements: Back of neck to hem: 80cm/31” (80cm/31”), Sleeve underarm: 40cm/16” (40cm/16”) , Chest circumference: 104cm/40” (120cm/45 ½”) 

Tension: 7sts and 8.5 rows to 10cm

7 (8)  x 100g skeins Mrs Moon Plump Superchunky (shown in Cherry Pie)
15mm and 12mm circular needles (at least 80cm) 15mm and 12mm dpns (for sleeves if not using magic loop)

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
