Crochet Cardigan

I recently shared a free crochet cardigan pattern with you guys from Lion Brand Yarns.

Here is my version of this pattern.

crochet cardigan This is the very first piece of real clothing I have made. Meaning there are sleeves. I really love this pattern for a beginner in crochet clothes. I was simple and gives you a good understanding and basic shaping techniques. The bobble, ch,bobble stitch is lovely as well it looks kinda like an upside down shell.

I still need to add a button or toggle for a closure. I will definitely make another one of these and I will give re-sizing it a try.

What do you think?

Free Pattern Find: Bebop Cardi

Hello! It’s time for another free pattern find!

I have been searching for some simple, free cardigan patterns. I want to make some size 5-6 and size 2 for my daughter and nieces. I found this really great, free pattern for a simple cardigan but the smallest size is size 6-8. This pattern is by Lion Brand Yarns.Style: "Neutral"It it a great little pattern that is also available on Ravelry if you want to put it on your project queue. I made this cardigan in two days working about 5 hours total. It is very quick and easy. It is a little too big for my daughter so I will be experimenting with the pattern to see if I can make one a size smaller.

Any tips on how to re-size a pattern like this? Or do you guys know something similar available for size 2-6? If you do, Please share!

This is the first piece of clothing I have made. If you are truly new to crocheting wearables/clothes I highly recommend this pattern.

Hope you guys enjoy this free pattern find. I will be sharing my version of this cardigan on my Wednesday update so keep an eye out for that. Have a great week!
