The Chunky Turtleneck Easy Sweater Pattern is the perfect cozy sweater to add warmth and style to your wardrobe. This sweater is fashionably baggy, so it will look great any time you wear it, and its deep turtleneck keeps every bit of warmth contained. Sweater knitting couldn’t be easier or faster with this knit sweater pattern, since the super bulky yarn and large needles make the process go quickly. Everyone can use a cuddly sweater on chilly winter days, and this one will be perfect for you.

I know someone who would LOVE to wear this sweater! Guess I need to find some great yarn to work it up in!
