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 in 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 measurements from 28″ to 64″

If you love the 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 pocket(s) placement 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.
