This long cardigan has things going for it. First, it’s deceptively easy to make: using only the most elementary crochet stitches, it’s worked in one piece from the right side across to the left and then stitched up each side with two simple seams, leaving armholes. It’s a great project for an advanced beginner who’d like to try making a garment.

Second, the vertical texture is slimming. And if you use a self-striping yarn, it will have slimming vertical stripes of color as well!

This pattern is written for women’s size L/XL and is approximately knee length on a woman who’s 5’7”. To make the size shown you will need about 1200 yards of a #4 weight yarn and a size K crochet hook.

The pattern also includes detailed instructions for how to adjust both size and length, so that you can make this cardigan in any size you like, including for children. There are also instructions for making a swatch so you can determine in advance if a different size hook will work better with your yarn or your personal gauge.
