Notes from the Designer:

This pattern is called Marine because the colors remind me of the depths of the ocean. Growing up close to the beach, the ocean has always fascinated me, and I have a tendency to gravitate toward colors that remind me of it. I wanted this cardigan to be a quick and easy piece for a beginner who wants to learn how to make a garment. This is achieved through easy stitchwork and loose tension. Even though a worsted weight yarn is used, the loose tension creates a light and airy cardigan that reminds me of netting and ties into the marine theme.

  • Click here to watch a video on how to work a few of the stitches featured in this pattern.
  • This pattern is worked top down starting at the yoke.
  • All parts of the pattern are crocheted on to minimize sewing.
  • The starting chain for each row does NOT count as a stitch.
  • Equation for starting chain is multiple of 8 + 4 + 2. Divide your multiple of 8 by 4 to get the number of stitches needed for the back panel and shoulders. Divide this number by 2 to get the number of stitches needed for the front panels. There are four increase points, which is the reason for the + 4. The extra 2 stitches are needed for going up to the next row.
  • Each row in the yoke increases by 8 stitches.
  • The sleeve decreases by 4 stitches every 5 rows. These are customizable and difficult to estimate because of the decreases. An estimate based on the sample is given below; however, additional rows will require additional yardage.
  • Yardage for the body is approximately 14 (15, 17, 18) (20, 22, 24) yards per row. Use gauge to figure out yardage needed to reach your preferred length. An estimate based on the sample is given below; however, additional rows will require additional yardage.
