This pattern was originally released as the Wisteria Mystery Create-A-Long in February 2016.


The Wisteria Cardigan is the perfect addition to every wardrobe….and since the pattern is written in all sizes Girl’s Small through Women’s 3XL (that’s 9 different sizes!), it really can be made for every female you know! In all seriousness, though, this light-weight cardigan is perfect for anytime early Fall through late Spring, and it matches everything. Dress it up by wearing it over your Sunday best, or dress it down by throwing it on over a tank top and some skinny jeans. It looks GREAT with absolutely everything. I can say this with complete honesty since I’ve been testing mine out with pretty much every outfit I own ever since I finished it, haha.

When you pair the versatility of this design with the step by step video tutorials that are included, and the 9 different sizes you’ll get, this is a pattern that you’re absolutely going to want to have in your collection! Working it from the top-down makes it unique for a cardigan, but also simple and straight forward. Though the lace looks intimidating (beautiful things always do, right!?), it’s actually quite simple….with the videos to help with any issue you might encounter, you’ll breeze through it!

Since this pattern was first released as a Mystery Create-A-Long design, it’s been thoroughly tested and created by upwards of 500 crafters already! Here’s what a couple had to say about this pattern:

  • “Love love love this pattern! I’m pretty sure I’m going to make at least 10 of these!” ~ DomesticJenne on Ravelry
  • “I never make anything for myself, and I love how this turned out.” ~ Achinateacup on Ravelry
  • “For my first garment I’m so happy with the results! The pattern was so easy to follow and if I was unsure the videos cleared it up. It drapes beautifully and I can’t wait to wear it out.” ~ MelissaM813 on Ravelry

To compliment this beautiful design, I’ve created a gorgeous matching slouch hat pattern along with a fun matching leg warmers pattern! I’ve heard from so many people now that the hat is the comfiest hat they’ve ever tried….and with slouch hats being so trendy right now, you’ll be comfy and stylish (as my 5 year old son would say!).

The Wisteria Cardigan Pattern includes detailed instructional videos for any tricky parts along the way. Our wonderful community of crafters (myself included) is also always ready and willing to help should you come across any questions (you can join us on Facebook by clicking here). Add all of those things together, and that makes this the perfect pattern for not only the more seasoned knitters and crocheters, but also for those of you who have been wanting to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. I guarantee that you’ll be glad you did!

This pattern calls for DK (3) weight yarn and size 5.0mm (H) crochet hook or whatever size is needed to obtain gauge.
