Sure it's possible. If you pick a pattern meant for knit fabric of about the same weight to begin with, or design with that in mind, it might work better. You may be able to do away with zippers, or you may be able to use a knitted zipper opening or even a steek (given the right yarn and stitching.) If you want to use a bulky yarn on a pattern meant for relatively thin fabric, you might want to think about the way that will affect drape and so on, so you don't start an Eisenhower jacket and end up with a maxi coat because of the weight
