My mom and I are currently working on a super exciting, MASSIVE secret project that I can’t wait to tell you about in a few months. My sister, Jamie, who thankfully is good at everything I’m not (i.e. being organized, cleaning my room, remembering important things) helps out with a lot of social media and planning support for Make & Do Crew. And our other sister, Mich, crochets and knit the periodic project to share with you here on the blog and then bravely poses for pictures of our crochet gear in super awkward settings (like outside of the hospital where our dad had successful brain surgery).

Working with my family on creative projects like this is quite literally my dream come true. Thank YOU so much for being here on the blog so it can be possible.

The Staycation women's crochet cardigan pattern, free from Make & Do Crew featuring Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca Yarn.

How to Crochet a Cardigan Sweater?

Good question! We asked ourselves the same thing when we came across a machine knit cardigan from Free People that we loved. Mich and I decided to decode the shapes involved in that sweater’s construction in order to design our own handmade women’s crochet cardigan pattern

This seemingly simple endeavor became our own yarn opus for the last few months. Don’t worry, the final crochet cardigan pattern isn’t super complicated, but working together from different locations, employing a crochet stitch we had never used before and trying to achieve the overall construction of the store sweater became an epic sister project that involved many late nights and about 8,791 photo text messages.

P.S. If you like making sweaters out of simple shapes, you might also like to check out these other free sweater patterns from Make & Do Crew:A collection of free crochet sweater patterns designed by Jess Coppom of Make & Do Crew using Lion Brand Yarn.

The Cardigan Construction

This Staycation Cardigan is made from five separate main pieces (back, two front pieces and two sleeves) with a ribbed collar and pockets seamed at the end. The result is flatteringly fitted in the shoulders and arms, and forgiving everywhere else.

Free women's crochet cardigan pattern (including plus sizes) that has a beautiful ribbed edging and roomy pockets. Pattern is made with Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca and the griddle stitch.

The Stitch

We used the Griddle Stitch for this women’s crochet cardigan pattern, which is a very simple combination of single and double crochets that creates a richly-textured fabric that doesn’t look “too crocheted.” (You know what I mean by this? Like, I don’t want to wear something that looks like a tissue-box cover. I want the texture to feel beautiful and sophisticated and even maybe look a bit knit–which this does! See lots more knit-looking free crochet patterns here!)

I created a video tutorial that walks you through the Griddle Stitch step-by-step, which you can find here. The skills you need for the Staycation Cardigan are single crochet, half double crochet and seaming. Don’t worry though, Part 2 of the free pattern walks you through each step of the seaming, which is mostly just single crocheting pieces together.

If you’re a visual learner like me, you may really benefit from the schematic and stitch chart that are included in the ad-free, printable PDF. Personally, I find written instructions a bit long to wade through, but a stitch chart can communicate seemingly complex ideas simply and quickly. You can purchase the ad-free, printable PDF here.

The Staycation Cardigan crochet pattern PDF includes a griddle crochet stitch chart as well as a sweater schematic.Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca yarn in the color "Jade" with vintage spools of yarn and a wooden crochet hook. The crochet stitch pictured is the Griddle Stitch.

The Yarn

Mich chose the gorgeous “Jade” shade of Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca yarn and I just love it! It’s rich and saturated enough to almost read as a neutral, but it packs a bit more of a visual punch than the typical geige I tend gravitate to. I hope you can tell in the photos how beautiful the texture of this sweater is when worked in this yarn.

I’ve used Touch of Alpaca for both the Greyscale Poncho and the At First Blush Triangle Scarf and I love what a perfect blend of practicality and luxury it offers. Plus, the colors are some of my favorite in any line of yarn. (You can see all the Touch of Alpaca colors here!)

Lion Brand has even created a kit from this pattern, which contains all the yarn you’ll need plus a printed copy of the pattern. You can treat yourself to the complete kit here!

Okay, let’s crochet this thing! Because this women’s crochet cardigan pattern includes a ton of photos and a few different sections, I’ve divided it into two blog posts. Part 2 of the free pattern can be found here. If you’d like the entire pattern in one easily printable place, the ad-free PDF includes the full pattern, stitch chart, schematic and photo tutorial. (It’s also great for mobile viewing.)

A stylish, modern women's crochet cardigan paired with spring flowered pants makes the perfect casual look for spring or fall. Free pattern!

    Hello! Thanks for sharing this gorgeous pattern! I love it! I do have a question about sizing.

    I measure at a size 50″ bust. Do I make a 2X? I don’t want it to be super baggy so I don’t think sizing down is an option because the arm holes or sleeves might be too tight. Let’s just say I don’t have the slimmest arms. Lol. What do you recommend? Thanks!

    • Jess @ Make and Do Crew
      February 24, 2018 at 9:45 pm

      Hmm. Good question. I think you could go with a 2X or a 3X depending on how loose you want the overall sweater to be. As you can see on the model, it’s quite oversized with her 38.5″ bust in a size M (which is sized to fit a 36-38″ bust). So I think it’s really just about if you want to err on the side of quite loose or a bit more fitted. Because of the cut of this, I don’t think it’s going to be super fitted if you go with the 2X.

      Also, if you end up purchasing the ad-free pdf, it could be helpful for you to check out the schematic within because it shows the measurements of each piece of the sweater. 🙂

      Hope that’s helpful!

      I’m sorry, I’m not familiar with Knit Companion. There should be six size choices for both the back measurement and the back piece. I’d like to help, but I’m afraid I may not be clear on your question. Can you maybe restate it?

    I can’t wait to try this, I love the pattern. I was just reading thru the pattern and I’m a little confused. Under the part of
    Indenting for the arms, in a couple of areas it only mentions 5 sizes in the parenthesis/brackets and in other places it has
    6 sizes.. Is this a typo or decrease? I hope you can figure out what I am refering too. But I so much want to try this pattern.

    Hi there! Purchased the pattern and was reading thru this morning. I’m going to start the Staycation Cardigan today in size Med. I noticed that on page 3 for the Ribbing instructions Row 2 only shows 5 sizes in parentheses. And also thru the rest of the pattern there are sections with only 5 sizes instead of 6. Is this a typo? There should be 6 sizes listed for easy row? Thanks for your help!

    I’m struggling with getting gauge correct. I guess I am a looooose crocheter, I’ve gone down 2 hook sizes and I’m still a wee bit off. Dare I go down a 3rd size hook. Any suggestions for tension, hook size, anything is welcome! Love your patterns, but man, I gotta get this gauging business down! Thanks,

      Hey Carrie,

      I say, don’t be afraid to change your hook size! Gauge is so personal and dependent on the material of your hook too. So just do whatever it takes to get the gauge and I think you’ll be the happiest with how your sweater fits in the end. 🙂

      Hey Holli,

      I’m assuming mean when you start the shoulder decreases right? (They start on a different row # depending on your size.) But yes, you do sl st the number of stitches for your size: 6 (4, 2, 2, 4, 2) (So like the small would sl st 6, the medium would sl st 4…)

      Happy crocheting!

    Hi! Quick question… with the ribbing, do you end each row by crocheting into the hole the chain 2 makes, or by crocheting into the chain itself? Because normally I crochet into the hole, but it makes little holes on the end that don’t look so great with ribbing. Thanks!

    Hi! This is the first sweater I’ve ever made. I’ve got the ribbing done for the back piece but I’m confused how I’m to end up with 107 stitches when there are only 81 rows in the ribbing. Are we supposed to use the row 1 of the back? If so when you read row 1 it shows 108 stitches and not 107? What am I missing here?

      Hey Stacey,

      Congrats on tackling your first sweater! I can see why this might be confusing. So the notes mention that you wanna work approximately 4 sts for every 3 ribbing rows, so that’s how you end up with 107 in only 81 rows of ribbing. The reason Row 1 has 108 sts at the end is because the ch 2 at the beginning counts as 1 st, then you work 107 more for a total of 108. Does that make sense?
