A simple V-neck jumper or cardi with a raglan sleeve - this kind of pattern opens you up to a world of possibility to make it your own. Use bright coloured stripes for your flamboyant grandfather's birthday present or create an oversized mustard cardi for your niece who just became a hipster and wants to buckle it with a belt and wear a jaunty hat.
These patterns are perfect for a knitter trying garments for the first time. Knitted in King Cole Big Value Super Chunky will keep costs down and create a beautiful garment. You could also try King Cole Quartz Super Chunky for a more colourful option.
