As summer is at it’s peak, it’s hard to imagine that in less than two months the weather will be quite different here in Wisconsin. I love the four seasons, but I am much more of a warm weather girl than one who embraces the cold. For that reason, I try to be prepared for the cold weather by having the warmest wardrobe ready!
Not much will be warmer than the Autumn Nights Chunky Cardi! This lush sweater will blanket you from the cold. It is about as cozy of a sweater that will ever find. The most wonderful part? You can make it yourself!
Using Red Heart Yarn Grande, I was able to design and make this project in less than one day. You can too! Here are my easy to follow instructions for this chunky cardigan along with the video tutorial on how to make one for yourself. Don’t get caught in the cold weather this fall and winter and make yours now!
Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this cardigan:
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

Materials you will need:
–Red Heart Grande Yarn in Oatmeal, Teal, Apricot, and Chianti
I used 10 balls of Oatmeal, 3 balls of Chianti, 3 balls of Apricot, and 2 balls of Teal
–Size Q-16mm Crochet Hook
-This is worked as 2 panels sewn together then sleeves separate, and sewn to the vest.
-The measurements for the cardigan I demonstrate in the video tutorial are: 72 inch panels (36 inches (92 cm) in length from shoulder to bottom), Sleeves measure 20 inches (50 cm). You can make as many stitches as you need because this pattern goes off measurements and not stitch counts.
-On the front/back panels, To make this shorter, make less stitches on your foundation row.
-On the Front/Back Panels, To make this longer, make more stitches on your foundation row.
-On the sleeves, to make them longer, make more stitches on your foundation row.
-To make the cuff longer, add more rows on your sleeve cuff.
-I used 828 Yards of yarn in this project
-I used Red Heart Grande Yarn in this project, but if you cannot access this yarn, go to YARNSUB.com and search “Grande” yarn, and click on Red Heart Yarns Grande. It will list all the yarns that are equal to this yarn so you can find a similar weight yarn if you cannot get Grande.
