This pattern was made with the beginner in mind. :)

Boyfriend cardigans are everywhere this season! This comfy, classic version is crocheted with basic shapes and easy stitches, making it a great beginner sweater. It features a relaxed fit with minimal shaping on the sleeves so it’s both a fun and practical piece. The alpaca blend yarn will keep you warm while pockets in front add comfort and character to this season’s wardrobe staple.
