When you crochet a cardigan from the neck down, you’ll divide the body and sleeves after increases are complete. The pattern includes 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.

What I love about this little crochet cardigan is the eyelet design encasing it. That something as simple as a skipped stitch creates such beautiful lines amazes me about crochet. It’s my kind of detail.

Otherwise this lightweight cardigan is crocheted with almost all double crochets. It works up fast and easy. The Spring Cardi is a fabulous beginner crochet cardigan, even if you haven’t made any garments before.

I searched a long time for just the perfect buttons. They needed to be the right size so they wouldn’t overwhelm the design.

Plus if you get the right buttons, you don’t need to fuss with button holes. They fit right through the stitches.

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.

3 Length Options for Sleeves

You can crochet this cardigan with long sleeves, short sleeves or three quarter length sleeves.

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…

Working a top down crochet cardigan means creating the perfect sleeve length is easy. Just try it on and you can decide to make any adjustments. The pattern includes directions for all three lengths.

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 extended 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.

    1. You will work 1 dc per ch added (from dividing the body and sleeves). Work 2 dc into the sides of the dc from the body row on either side of the added chs.

    2. Row count starts over.

    3. Worked in the round, but turned after joining.

    4. A st multiple of 4 is needed on the sleeves for the wrist detail.

    5. You can easily increase or decrease sleeves stitches & length to suit your needs.

    6. Be sure to join and work sleeves in the same direction as the body, to keep your rows the same.

  1. I love your choice of buttons, the colour really pops. Thank you for a great pattern, I’m going to make this as soon as my bank account refills and I can get more yarn 🙂

  2. i would like to print the pattern so I could make one while sitting in the evenings. Don’t wish to sit at the computer and attempt to make it.

  3. I understand. The printable pdf version is available on Etsy or Ravelry for those who prefer one. I’m currently running a 20% off sale in both my shops, so the pdf pattern is discounted at this time.

  4. I love this. Love the buttons and the color too. I love to make cardigans. I don’t think there are enough patterns out there as nice as this one. this will be my first short one. Thank you for this amazing pattern.

  5. Love how this pattern worked up until I got to the body directions. I am making the size 2x and can’t seem to find the counts for front to sleeve, the sleeve count, or the back count. Hope you will be able to help so I can finish my sweater.

  6. Hi Linda,
    So sorry, it looks like I made a copy and paste error on Row 1 of the body for your size. I’ve corrected it in the pattern, but here it is again: 1. Ch 3, dc in next 42 sts, sk next 65 sts, ch 6, dc in next 91 sts, sk next 65 sts, ch 6, dc in each st to the end, turn. (189 body & 65 each sleeve) Thanks so much for reaching out so I could correct it! I hope it continues to work up well for you!
    Thanks,
    Crystal

  7. I do not have a printer as I am on a cell phone, was hoping I could download? did I miss something?

  8. I noticed on the M Long Sleeves section that you have Row 5 accounted for twice. Could you please clarify.
    Thank you
    Flo

  9. Hi Florence,

    Thanks for reaching out. It should only be Rows 2-4. And then Row 5 starts on the next line. Thank you for catching that and letting know. I’ve corrected it.

  10. I made another pattern and no directions on how to attach the sleeves. I’m glad I found this pattern.

  11. Is there a way I could do this with worsted weight yarn like lion brand pound of love? What’s the best way to calculate that in choosing the proper finished size and hook size?

  12. Hi Christa! I’m currently making size S in this cardigan, I’m on row 6. I’m excited to see how it turns out, this will be my 1st cardigan! I’ve noticed that in size S;TOP part-After row 2 ends, row 3 didn’t get pushed down a line so it’s actually at the end of row 2, but the next row says it’s row 3. It has thrown the number count off by 1, where as row 3 should actually be row 4.
    Even so, I just want you to know this is the most clear and well written pattern I have ever read/worked! Yours’ looks beautiful and I can’t wait to see mine keep coming to life at my hands, thank you so much!!

  13. Thank you Scarlett! I’ve updated it. I really appreciate you letting me know. And I’m so glad you’re enjoying!
