I bet this is one of the easiest sweaters you'll ever knit. And it's quick. And it's free.
Knitting needles: 10 mm/15 US/ 000 Canadian and UK
Yarn: I used Meldoy by Patons. This is an 100% acrylic super bulky yarn.
I knit the smallest size and used 6 skeins
Weight: 600 grams (100 grams per skein)
Yardage: 510 yards (85 yards per skein)
466.34 meters (77.72 meters per skein)
I recommend you add a skein for each size (i.e. 7 skeins for medium, 8 skeins for large, etc.)
But you could use a different super bulky yarn
Tension: 9 stitches = 4 inches
Stitch pattern: Garter
Row 1: knit--to end of row
Repeat row for pattern
How to work the knit stitch tutorial
Front and back (make 2)
Cast on 40 (45, 54, 59, 63) stitches
Work for 22 (22, 24, 24, 26, 26) inches
Sleeves (make 2)
Cast on 9 stitches
Work for 16 inches
I like to work my sleeves from the shoulder down.
It's really important to cast off loosely. You could even use a size larger needle.
Sew shoulder seams (approximately 2 to 3 inches on both sides)
(5 to 7.6 centimeters)
Sew side seams
Here's how to make fringe
