The Kristen Cardigan is a duster style crochet cardigan featuring a beautiful, textured stitch and big outside pockets!
The Kristen Cardigan was my first crochet cardigan design! I wanted to create a long winter cardigan that would look great with any outfit.
I decided on a worsted weight, acrylic yarn for warmth and sturdiness. Then, I decided to use the Even Moss Stitch for my main stitch. I just love the texture that this stitch combo creates!
This cardigan is named the Kristen Cardigan after my sister!
The cardigan turned out better than I imagined! I love the length and the look! It is perfect for fall and winter!
This crochet cardigan pattern calls for worsted (#4) weight yarn. I used Premier Yarns Everyday Worsted for my cardigan.
This yarn was a really nice anti-pilling, 100% acrylic yarn. It has a large variety of colors to choose from. I used the colorway Fawn.
You will need 1530-2450 yards, depending on what size you are making.
This pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty. You will need to know basic stitches like slip stitch and half double crochet. You will also need to be somewhat familiar with how to crochet garments.
The cardigan is worked from the bottom up and split into three panels at the top to create the armholes. You will then sew the front panels to the back panel at the shoulders.
The sleeves, trim, and pockets are created last.
This pattern has written instructions for sizes XS to 3X. It also includes some photo tutorials within the pattern to help you with the construction of the cardigan.
