Did Someone say Crochet Cardigan Pattern? Yes! I am so glad to be hosting this month’s Crochet Along by Collective Crochet Together, and I bring you the Real bobble crochet cardigan, this pattern would be released in 3 parts.

I am super excited to be featuring this cute crochet cardigan Pattern as a Crochet Along (CAL) and most importantly, to have you all ready to make this pattern. I have always wanted to make a diamond shape cardigan but could not get a perfect shape to fit my imagination. so I thought, why not make a the diamonds pop out with some beautiful bobbles. It was as if I just got the best inspiration and could not put the pattern down till I completed the whole body, including the bobbles.

Name Inspiration

The inspiration behind this pattern’s name came from my son, who loves to play with bobbles and would always be excited when I played along. I love the well detailed Bobbles and thought these are the real bobbles that my son can not bust!!!
