Cute Flare Sleeve Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Cute Flare Sleeve Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Summer is wrapping up, and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited.

Fall means warm soups, cozy blankets, chilly mornings, and an excuse to break out all of my favorite layers.

With cooler weather on the brain, this Cute Flare Sleeve Cardigan was conceived.  I wanted to create a cardigan that was a little bit different and that would be perfect for the beginning of Fall without being too heavy.

Thus, this cardigan has a relaxed, boxy fit with cute, ¾ length flare sleeves that you can throw over a tank or tee for a little extra warmth, or wear as your main outerwear layer.

It’s made with Cascade 220 in Tangerine, which is perfect for this cardigan because it’s a worsted weight yarn that combines breathability with warmth.  You’ll want a yarn that’s not too heavy since this is a light layer, while also being warm and soft.

Cascade 220 completely fits the bill and is 100% wool, so you know you’re working with an all-natural, top quality yarn.

With its bright pop of color and simple flare shape, this cardigan is giving me Fall Fever, and it’s ultra flattering on all shapes.
