My mom and I are currently working on a super exciting, MASSIVE secret project that I can’t wait to tell you about in a few months. My sister, Jamie, who thankfully is good at everything I’m not (i.e. being organized, cleaning my room, remembering important things) helps out with a lot of social media and planning support for Make & Do Crew. And our other sister, Mich, crochets and knit  to share with you here on the blog and then bravely poses for pictures of our crochet gear in super awkward settings (like ).

Working with my family on creative projects like this is quite literally my dream come true. Thank YOU so much for being here on the blog so it can be possible.

How to Crochet a Cardigan Sweater?

Good question! We asked ourselves the same thing when we came across a machine knit cardigan from Free People that we loved. Mich and I decided to decode the shapes involved in that sweater’s construction in order to design our own handmade. 

This seemingly simple endeavor became our own yarn opus for the last few months. Don’t worry, the final crochet cardigan pattern isn’t super complicated, but working together from different locations, employing a and trying to achieve the overall construction of the store sweater became an epic sister project that involved many late nights and about 8,791 photo text messages.

The Cardigan Construction

This Staycation Cardigan is made from five separate main pieces (back, two front pieces and two sleeves) with a ribbed collar and pockets seamed at the end. The result is flatteringly fitted in the shoulders and arms, and forgiving everywhere else.

Free women's crochet cardigan pattern (including plus sizes) that has a beautiful ribbed edging and roomy pockets. Pattern is made with Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca and the griddle stitch.

The Stitch

We used the Griddle Stitch for this women’s crochet cardigan pattern, which is a very simple combination of single and double crochets that creates a richly-textured fabric that doesn’t look “too crocheted.” (You know what I mean by this? Like, I don’t want to wear something that looks like a tissue-box cover. I want the texture to feel beautiful and sophisticated and even maybe look a bit knit–which this does! See lots more knit-looking free crochet patterns!)

I created a video tutorial that walks you through the Griddle Stitch step-by-step, which you can find. The skills you need for the Staycation Cardigan are single crochet, half double crochet and seaming. Don’t worry though, Part 2 of the free pattern walks you through each step of the seaming, which is mostly just single crocheting pieces together.

If you’re a visual learner like me, you may really benefit from the schematic and stitch chart that are included in the. Personally, I find written instructions a bit long to wade through, but a stitch chart can communicate seemingly complex ideas simply and quickly. You can purchase the ad-free, printable PDF for.99 .

The Yarn

Mich chose the gorgeous “” shade of and I just love it! It’s rich and saturated enough to almost read as a neutral, but it packs a bit more of a visual punch than the. I hope you can tell in the photos how beautiful the texture of this sweater is when worked in this yarn.

I’ve used for both and the  and I love what a perfect blend of practicality and luxury it offers. Plus, the colors are some of my favorite in any line of yarn. (You can see all the Touch of Alpaca colors!)

Lion Brand has even created a kit from this pattern, which contains all the yarn you’ll need plus a printed copy of the pattern. You can treat yourself to the complete kit!

Okay, let’s crochet this thing! Because this women’s crochet cardigan pattern includes a ton of photos and a few different sections, I’ve divided it into two blog posts. Part 2 of the free pattern can be found. If you’d like the entire pattern in one easily printable place, includes the full pattern, stitch chart, schematic and photo tutorial.
