16 Stunning Crochet Cardigan Patterns

16 Stunning Crochet Cardigan Patterns

When you’re first learning how to crochet, crochet cardigan patterns can feel a little intimidating.  I remember I could stitch up a million hats and even work on gloves. But the idea of making my own cardigan seemed far-fetched and completely overwhelmed.

But I realized that the only way to get past this was to work through it. And when I made my first cardigan, I realized it was just like any other project. There were steps I had questions about and parts that I worked up no problem.  

Crochet for beginners doesn’t have to consist of just blankets and hats. You can make a cardigan too. That’s what’s so great about them. They’re exciting enough for advanced crocheters and easy enough for beginners.

They’re universal, which is why I’ve collected 16 stunning crochet cardigans for you. In this list, you’ll find a style for everyone (and hopefully, at least one pattern you’ll take a chance on!)

The Marley Cardi-A Long & Chunky Cardigan Sweater

This sweater is chunky (yet flowy), cozy and pairs great with leggings. Designed to more hang by the sides of your body, and not necessarily to close all the way down. It’s the sweetest little cardigan sweater you ever did see. And wear. And make.
