Fringe Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Fringe Cardigan Crochet Pattern

When it gets hot outside, we don’t put our crochet needles down. We pick warm weather patterns up. This is the kind of fringe cardigan crochet pattern you’re looking for. It’s light and cool, not to mention ultra stylish.

Layer it over any outfit, you can dress it up or dress it down. No one else will have this cardigan because it’s totally one of a kind 🙂  

This cardigan is made with Cascade Ultra Pima DK yarn in Vintage Rose. This is absolutely the perfect yarn to use for this project because it’s lightweight and durable which carries well through the summer, but also has a beautiful drape to it that will work into the fall and winter. The Vintage Rose color used for this project is versatile and can be paired well with black, brown or even pops of color. 

And good news! I’ve partnered with local yarn stores to put together a kit for this pattern.

Every kit includes the digital PDF pattern for the Fringe Cardigan, plus all of the yarn you need to bring this project to life. For the next 24 hours, you can purchase your kit here and save 10% off your order. Plus you can feel good about your purchase because you’re supporting a small business who is passionate about crochet. I love supporting other makers, and it’s great to be a part of such a supportive community.

Festival Fringe Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Assembly:

Facing the right sides together, line up the corners of the front and back panels. Whip stitch the top of the shoulders together and weave in ends. Place the right side of the sleeve against the body. Whip stitch sleeve in place, making sure not to pull too tightly. Repeat for other sleeve. Sew sleeve and lower side seams. Weave in all ends. Cut approximately 200 12” lengths of yarn for fringe. Fold fringe string in half, and pull the loop though the first stitch on the bottom of the cardigan with a hook, then pull tails through loop and pull snug. Repeat around.   

Size modifications:

To increase the size of this cardigan, add in multiples of 10 ch to the sleeve and front pieces, and increments of 20 to the back. For medium, add 2 rows in length to all pieces. For large, add 4, and extra large add 6. For a custom fit, ch to your perfect length, just be sure it’s in multiples of 2 plus 1.

    Hello. I was wondering, is there a multiple chain for this to make it larger? I’m not sure what size your pattern is for but your model looks like a small. I’d like to try this in a large size if you are able to provide the chain length for that I would really appreciate it.

    The cardigan pattern doesn’t give any size information. As a more generously proportioned individual, with lymphedema in both my arms, sizing and measurements make a huge difference in whether or not I am interested in working a pattern. While I like this pattern in general, I wouldn’t consider buyin or working it without that information.

    What size is it? I purchased this pattern earlier in the month but couldn’t see anywhere where it specifies size or how to adjust for a different size. Any suggestions?

      Hi Janet,

      Sorry for the late reply. I’ve now updated the post to show how to modify in different sizes.

    Hi just wondering if this is set in different sizes. It only mentions whatever size in the picture but I did not see a size listed. It is beautiful and worth trying if it comes in different and bigger sizes.

    Hi, I am curious to know the size of the cardigan and can it be enlarged or downsized? I saw no reference to the size. It is very beautiful and I love it.

      I’ve updated the post (near the bottom) to show size modifications. 🙂

    Your pattern says chain 51 for front piece. But back is only 84 chains, how do you attach both fronts to back? The math doesn’t work. Please help

      Hi Sandra,

      Sorry, for the late response. We’ve since updated the post for the correct number or chains as well as sizing.
