7 Hour Cardigan, Cocoon Cardigan, Blanket Shrug, Crochet Pattern


Cocoon Cardigan Crochet Pattern






Crochet Cocoon Cardigan



Crochet Blanket Cardigan



Crochet Blanket Sweater



This is my first crochet clothing pattern for women. I wanted to start with a design that has minimal shaping and a cocoon shrug pattern was the best choice. I anticipated that I will be working on this for a week but to my surprise, I finished the size Small in under 7 hours. The bigger ones might take a couple of hours extra, but this will be a pattern that will work up very quickly for a garment. I had bought Vanna's choice yarn on sale during Thanksgiving and you know what the cost of this sweater turned out to be? Under 15 dollars! Sizes Small to Large need only 8 skeins of yarn. Isn't that amazing? A sweater that won't break your back or the bank. I hope you will enjoy working on this pattern.

* The pattern is written in standard American terms.

*It includes sizes XS/S, M/L and XL/2XL.

*The pattern uses front post and back post double crochet stitches for the collar and you can see a tutorial here.

*  It uses worsted weight(size 4 yarn). Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn in colors Linen and Rust were used for the shrug pictured.

*It is worked using a J(6mm) hook. 

* The shrug has minimal shaping and is very quick to work up. 

* The design is meant to be loose fitting.

This is a gorgeous crochet hat that will be perfect for fall, mild winter or Spring. The crochet pattern includes an option for a Messy bun hat as well as a Slouchy. Double the fun, right? I designed this hat with Craftsy's Sprightly yarn and absolutely loved the results. It had the right amount of drape and thickness for this project and I plan to use it more in my future projects.

* The pattern gives you 2 options, one to make a Messy Bun Beanie and another to make a Slouchy Hat.

* The pattern is written in Standard American Terms. 

*The pattern uses worsted weight yarn ( size 4 medium). I used Sprightly Acrylic Wool Worsted Yarn in color Charcoal Heather.

Crochet Cowl Pattern, Celestia Triangle Cowl

Crochet Boho Cowl Pattern



Crochet Triangle Cowl Pattern



Crochet Cowl Pattern





Who wouldn't love a cowl in this cold weather? This crochet pattern has been designed keeping both style and ease of use in mind. Since it is a cowl, you just have to slip it on and you are ready to go, unlike triangle shawls that need to be wrapped around your neck. The fringe adds a Boho touch that I adore, but if you are not a fringe girl, you can opt not to add them. 

I love the one I made with a variegated yarn and the light grey. The green turned out too dark and was not really showing the stitch pattern. So I suggest you use light colors for this pattern. Which cowl did you like the best?

* The pattern is written in standard American terms.
*The pattern comes in 3 sizes, Toddler, Child, and Adult.
* Any light worsted weight yarn like Redheart stripes, Lion Brand Heartland or Lion Brand Wool-ease would work well. 
* Hook J(6mm) was used for the samples.
