Much Love Sweater
This sweater has a lot of love to give. A chunky pullover with a relaxed fit and no waist shaping.
The sweater body is knit straight, from the bottom-up with the hemline at hip level. It features a big love heart on the front that is created using the intarsia technique. The contrast ribbing gives the sweater a retro vibe.
It is worked flat in panels and seamed. The neckline stitches are picked up and worked in the round.
This size-inclusive pattern is written for nine sizes - XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL).

The front and back panels are knitted flat and then seamed together at the shoulders. Stitches are then picked up along the sides of the body and sleeves are knitted flat. The garment is then seamed along the sides of the body and along the sleeves. The neckline stitches are picked up and knitted in the round.
- There is 21cm of positive ease in the body and 10.5cm in the sleeves. Take your bust measurement and add 21cm to determine your size.
- If you are not using the recommended yarn, it is important to do a tension square/swatch and check your gauge. The Amigo Chunky is slightly heavier than a usual chunky/bulky weight yarn.
