Pattern Inspiration

Crochet cables are some of my favorite stitch combinations! They just look so elegant and classy! I had already designed and published the Aspen Tunic and loved it so much I decided to design a matching cardigan!

I wanted to create a very simple cardigan so that the cables would be the highlight of it. I went with a lightweight yarn and a top down workup.

I used a combination of front post double crochet and front and back post triple crochet stitches to create the braided cable stitching. Be sure to check out my tutorial on YouTube before you get started!

This cardigan pattern turned out so nice! I love the herringbone double crochet stitch as the main stitch and then the post stitches on the back. It just is such a great crochet cardigan for fall!

Pattern Details

This crochet cardigan pattern can be made with a sport (#2) weight yarn or a dk (#3). I used WeCrochet Swish DK yarn for my cardigan.

Swish DK is a 100% superwash merino wool yarn that is so luxurious and soft! It is one of my all time favorite yarns.

This yarn can be machine washed and dried. It can be a bit tricky because it grows when washing, but shrinks back to it’s original size when dried in the dryer. Keep that in mind when blocking and washing.

The end result makes the washing difficulties worth it though. It is so soft and comfortable, and has an amazing drape!

The pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty. You will need to know the herringbone double crochet stitch as well as front and back post stitches.

The cardigan is worked from the top down, with sleeves and trim added at the end. The pattern comes in women’s sizes XS to 3X.

The Aspen Cardigan is a true to size cardigan with just a small amount of positive ease. If you want a more over sized look, go up a full size.

It is made to come to the hips but can be adjusted in length by adding rows. Or to make it shorter, do less rows. Blocking will also add length to the cardgian.
