Is there anything more fall than a chunky cardigan? Pair it with a pumpkin patch, some hot apple cider and crisp leaves on the ground, and you’ve got yourself a movie moment.

While the need for a go-to fall sweater will never change, the trendy styles will. This year, cozy textured sweaters are in, which is why sales for the Merokeety chunky cardigan have recently taken off like a rocket, increasing by more than 3,925 percent. No joke.

The sweater was at the tippy top of Amazon’s movers and shakers page just a few days ago, so it’s clearly on the minds of shoppers gearing up for fall.

We can see why the cardigan is getting so much love: The soft and stretchy feel combined with the slouchy, relaxed look — with pockets! — makes it feel like a warm hug.

The long style is great for layering over t-shirts and blouses, giving you more coziness and coverage. Plus, it comes in 13 different colors, all equally unique and chic.

Basic colors like blackmaroon, and gray are perfect work essentials to keep in a chilly office or wear from home as a planned look. Dress it up with a skirt and heels, or kept it casual with jeans and sneaks.

Want to up the comfort factor even more? Some colors come with a hood. With a nearly perfect 4-star rating and lots of online buzz, we think this sweater should find its way into your closet for sure.

Perfect for any season

One five-star reviewer wrote: “In love with the sweater. Wearing a size medium (5’8, 118 pounds) in the Taro color. It’s soft, with pockets, and true to the size chart posted. It can be worn in the summer, fall, winter or spring. An investment piece that goes the distance. Will buy other colors.”

Versatile

One five-star reviewer wrote: “This is so cute! It's the perfect length and so comfortable! I love how soft it is; almost like wearing a blanket. I even feel like it dresses up some outfits. Perfect for fall weather or early spring! And to bring in places with air conditioning as it will keep you warm but not hot.”

Great for layering

One five-star reviewer wrote: “I really like this cardigan a lot. It's true to size, and is super soft. It's not super heavy, or super light and would be perfect for a cooler spring or fall day. I could definitely see wearing this over a pair of leggings and a t-shirt, or a dress. Overall, this cardigan was a great purchase and I'm looking forward to wearing it more when it gets a little bit cooler.”
