The Spring Cardi-a Free Crochet Cardigan Pattern

The Spring Cardi-a Free Crochet Cardigan Pattern

Introducing the Spring Cardi! This lightweight cardigan includes 3 sleeve options and is sure to be a wardrobe staple. Red Heart Fashion Soft shines here, lending this sweater it’s gorgeous drape and sheen. The beginner friendly pattern includes sizes XS-5X and is worked top down, which means you can try it on as you go; and there’s no seaming!

What I love about this cardigan is the eyelet design encasing it. That something as simple as a skipped stitch creates such beautiful lines amazes me about crochet. Otherwise this little cardigan is crocheted with almost all double crochets. It works up fast and easy. This is a fabulous beginner crochet cardigan, even if you haven’t made any garments before.

I’ve included pictures and a couple of videos for dividing the body and sleeves. These really are simple steps, but sometimes it’s just easier to watch it being done.

All buttoned up! I eagerly awaited for these little square buttons from an Etsy Shop in France. BijouxBoutonsTrieux I think they’re a great compliment to the eyelet design.

Long sleeves aren’t your thing? No worries, short sleeve and 3/4 sleeves are available! I received so much interest in other sleeve options that I decided to add them in. Eccola! Now to decide which ones to keep…

Once you get going on the body section of your cardigan you might notice there are some rows written in toward the second half that include the edc, or extended double crochet stitch. These stitches are worked along the back portion only to maintain balance between front and back. If you’ve never done an edc before I’ve linked up a tutorial for you.

This is how I’m loving my Spring Cardi the most-long sleeves and top button only. It’s still too cold for my Texas blood here in the mornings and evenings. My cardigan is the perfect solution until the heat of summer is here.

Materials

Notes

  1. Please work a gauge swatch before beginning.
  2. Cardigan is worked top down, raglan style with increases placed at four points.
  3. Worked in rows, turning after each. 
  4. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, like one of these.
  5. St multiple of 4 + 3 is needed for the neckline & hem detail.
  6. Body section is divided into sizes: XS (S), M (L), and XL (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X).
  7. Sleeve section is divided into each separate size & includes 3 length options.
