The Aspen Cardigan crochet pattern is a beautiful crochet cardigan that is perfect for fall!
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!
So for this crochet cardigan pattern I decided to stick with the same yarn and stitches as the tunic. I wanted something very simple in the front and then when you turn around the cable detailing would shine!
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!
This crochet cardigan pattern calls for sport (#2) weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Brava Sport for my cardigan.
I really like this sport weight yarn for cardigans and sweaters. It’s a bit on the thicker side for a sport weight, so it can be used for patterns that call for DK weight as well.
It is 100% acrylic, machine washable, and comes in a large variety of colors. I’ve used this yarn for quite a few of my crochet patterns.
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.
