The Incredible Custom Fit Raglan Sweater pattern is great for things like this. It shows you how to use any weight yarn and make a custom sweater or cardigan for anyone. You can also choose what type of collar to put on it.

No collar, but with SONNET you can fit the pattern to whatever yarn you want.

Those are both nice but still not what I have in mind.. I was thinking Big Funky comfy collared sweater...
To wrap yourself in on a cold cozy night

Sounds good, huh ?

One that does the math for me.. I hate figuring all that stuff out...

I don't know of a free one, but one thought is to check the yarn company sites and see what patterns are available for their bulky yarns.

I have a Better Homes and Gardens Knitted Cold-Weather Sweaters booklet that has a collared long (down to the knee) bulky, cabled sweater that probably could be adjusted for length. I don't recall where I got it. It says that it's a Leisure Arts Publication.

This book has the most fantastic, simple patterns for bulky yarn. Awesome cardigans. Maybe your library has it? (Mine didn't but I got it on inter-library loan!) :D

Again not free... but Chunky Knits (book) has just what you are looking for (At least I think ) sort of like a sweater "blanket"

I was thinking the same thing as Julie. There is a great bulky cardigan pattern there. It's on my list of to dos!

You can check out the website for this authors, who own a yarn shop in NYC. http://www.theyarnco.com Some of the patterns in their books can be bought individually on the site. But wouldn't you know, I couldn't find the cardigan one I was thinking of!

OK - I found these at knittingpatterncentral:

http://www.mangomoonyarns.com/boxy_cardigan.html

http://www.mangomoonyarns.com/Shawl_Cardigan.html

http://www.crafts-beautiful.com/proj...w=view&ID=199#
(You could make this one bigger & bulkier just by following the same directions using whatever needles your bulky yarn calls for)

http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/proj..._knitproj.html

OK - Im tired of looking through this list now. I got down to the F's and S's. Here's the cardigan page. There are lots more!
