I love the speed of working with a chunky yarn, however the results are not always flattering! This cardigan is worked side-to-side from the center of the back out, with flattering short rows creating a gentle flare at the bottom. The sleeves are worked with short row shaping and the sides are bound off together for a piece that needs minimal finishing. Vertical accent rows will make this the most flattering knit you have ever made from a chunky yarn!
