Free Pattern: The Spring Breeze Crochet Cocoon Cardigan

Hey there hey, my friends!

I come bearing a pattern that should have been released nearly three years ago!! I know, I know, that’s a long time. This one’s been a rather strange one for some reason because I have designed and released other patterns since this one was designed. Buuuut, we shall wait no longer…hahaa!

If you’re looking for a quick crochet cocoon cardigan that looks absolutely fabulous and can be dressed up or down, then this is right up your street!

PIN IT NOW! READ IT LATER!

The Spring Breeze Crochet Cocoon Cardigan is perfect if you are looking for a quick project to work on. It is crocheted flat using a fun and easy-to-remember stitch pattern that makes it a breeze to create. The stitch pattern is repeated throughout the project, making it a great choice for crocheters who prefer to work on autopilot, read or watch TV without having to constantly refer to a pattern.

The versatility of the Spring Breeze Cardigan allows you to dress it up or down for any occasion and that’s another thing I love about it…plus, you guessed it, it’s lacey!

To create this beaut of a cocoon cardigan, you will need worsted weight yarn (I used Malabrigo Worsted for the sample pictured) and a 5 mm (US H/8) crochet hook. So, let’s get to it!

You can adjust the length (shorter or longer) by reducing or increasing the amount of rows you crochet

Please bear in mind that you will need more yarn if you are increasing the length or width of the cardi.

PATTERN

With size 5 mm (US H/8) crochet hook, chain 100 (132, 148, 164, 180, 196, 212, 228)

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each rem ch; ch 4 (counts as a dc and ch-1 sp on following row), turn.

Row 2: Sk next st, dc in next st; *sk 2 sts, shell in next st, sk 2 sts, dc in next st, ch 1, sk next st, dc in next st; rep from * across; ch 4, turn.

Row 3: Dc in next dc; *shell in center dc of next shell, sk next 2 dc on same shell, dc in next dc, ch 1, dc in next dc; rep from * across, end with dc in 3rd ch of turning ch; ch 4, turn.

Rep row 3: 39 (51, 57, 53, 68, 75, 81, 88) times more

Seaming

Fold your rectangle lengthwise as shown below, so that the length is halved, that is 11 (14.5, 16.25, 18, 19.5, 21.5, 23, 25)”

Right and left arm holes

Measure 6.5 (7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10)” from the folded edge of your rectangle and use a stitch marker to mark this point. Using the edges of your rectangle, sew up from the bottom to the stitch marker.

Armhole edging x2

Join your yarn with slip st under the armpit area. Ch1, sc evenly around the edge of your armhole. Slip st in top of first sc

Cardigan edging

With RS facing, join yarn with slip stitch at the left or right edge of your cardigan.

Ch3, work dc evenly around the edge of your cardigan. Slip st in top of first dc. The number of dc sts you end up with will vary; I suggest between the following numbers:

XS: 196–200

S/M: 260–264

M/L: 292–296

L/XL: 324–328

XL/2XL: 356–360

2XL/3XL: 388–392

3XL/4XL: 420–424

4XL/5XL: 452–456

Ch3, fpdc around first dc, bpdc around next dc, *fpdc around next dc, bpdc around next dc; rep from * around. Slip st in top of first dc

Weave in all ends.

….and you are done! Go ahead and rock that baby!!

C2C + yarn cake = always a glorious union. Working c2c is mindless crocheting for me, which I am loving right now. 

I’m crocheting a blanket for my living room. Not sure how big I want it but the beauty of c2c is that it’ll be easy for me to decide how big before I start decreasing 🙌🏽.

The yarn 🧶 is scrumptious and lush to work with 😍😍. It’s called Hurricane and I purchased it from @hobbii_yarn.

Do you crochet c2c?
