Easy crochet pocket cardigan pattern
Crochet pocket cardigan – one of my favorite things to make. You might have known that I have a thing for pockets on my designs. After making the chic reversible cardigan with pockets I knew a new cardigan of similar length with pockets on the outside would be fun to make. Thus the inspiration for this design.
This beautiful crochet pocket cardigan is size inclusive – That is, the pattern comes in 9 different sizes using bust measurement from 28″ to 64″
If you love texture with a combination of learning beautiful and new stitches with techniques, then this crochet pocket cardigan is for you.
Surprisingly, this pocket cardigan works up pretty quickly as it uses Aran weight yarn.
You can even make yours by adding two pockets! I only have one pocket in mine!
Also, you could adjust the placement of the pocket(s) in this cardigan. I think this is pretty cool!!
This crochet pocket cardigan is available only as a premium version. You can get a copy on Ravelry or on Etsy.
