I LOVE chunky knits and big needles. Anyone have any quick and easy chunky knit patterns? Thanks in advance!

If you go to Garnstudio.com, you can sort the patterns by gauge, and they're all free.

The first picture doesn't look very chunky but you use bulky yarn and it's so cute.

There's also a similar shrug in Fitted Knits that I like, with long sleeves.

This book by Vogue knitting http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1931543518/smarterbooks-20 has a lot of patterns you might like. I've also used super bulky yarn to do an afghan (pattern in Creative Knitting magazine, not sure which month). My swap pal gave me some Scheherazade yarn (see http://www.fiber2yarn.com/catalog.php?item=2956) which I made into a scarf (cast on 8 stitches, knit one row, knit next row wrapping yarn around twice - repeat these two rows until scarf is the length you want).
