This cardigan is the perfect addition to your spring or fall wardrobe. The leave pattern is addictive and you will not want to put it down until you finish the pattern! Dress it up for date night, wear it with jeans for a more casual look or take it to the office for all the compliments!

The cardi is worked from the bottom up and is divided into panels at the top for minimal sewing. The pattern is super versatile; includes notes on how to make it long sleeve, short or sleeveless.

Yarn yardage: Calculated based on the averages from testers. Depending on the length of the garment you wish to make your yardage may vary. (Long sleeves, short sleeves, sleeveless) : S (1107, 786, 760 yards), M (1230, 1020, 863 yards), L (1353, 1230, 1150 yards), XL (1476, 1325, 1250 yards), 2XL (1599, 1435, 1299 yards).

Hook: 4.25mm/US G6 or hook size needed to obtain gauge.

My sample is made with Knit Picks Cotlin in Copper. My testers have found success with Paintbox Cotton DK, Bernat Baby Sport, Drops Design Belle, and Stylecrafts Special DK.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take the time to check your gauge and make adjustments as needed, going up or down in hook size.

Pay What You Choose: In order to make my designs more financially accessible but still valuing the work it takes to create these patterns, I am implementing a “Pay What You Choose” model. These prices indicate the fair amount that has been put into the designs and hopefully can become a sustainable way for me to keep creating crochet patterns. Does not apply to all patterns.
