Boho Duster Cardigan Crochet Pattern

The Boho Duster Cardigan Crochet Pattern is just what you need for fall! It’s long, comfy, and has a fun flare at the hips and in the sleeves. But I especially love the length of this cardigan.

Don’t let the extra long length of this duster worry you. It’s finished up quicker than you might think. I used the Offset V Stitch and not only does it give a pretty and open design, but it made this a fast project. Plus, this stitch is an easy 1 row repeat.

For this cardigan I used one of my favorite acrylic yarns, Lion Brand Jean’s Yarn! It’s so soft and squishy, but it’s a a durable acrylic which makes it super easy to take care of. There are some great colors to choose from. I picked these because they just screamed fall to me. I am so ready for cooler weather so I can wear this duster out and about. I think it would be so cute with skinny jeans and booties. So grab you favorite worsted weight yarn and let’s go!

BOHO DUSTER CARDIGAN

BACK

Pattern written in S, M noted in ( ), L noted in [ ], XL noted in { }

In Color A ch 62 (68) [74] {80}, leave a long starting end for sewing

Row 1: dc in 5th ch from the hook, (ch 4 counts as dc + ch 1) *skip 2 stitches, v stitch in next* repeat from * to * across to last 3 stitches, skip 2, dc in last (19 v stitches, (21 v stitches), [23 v stitches], {25 v stitches}, 1 dc)

Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, *skip next dc and ch, v stitch in next dc* repeat from * to * across to last v stitch, dc in last stitch (the turning ch from previous row) (19 v stitches, (21 v stitches), [23 v stitches], {25 v stitches}, 1 dc)

Repeat row 2 to row 28 (30) [32] {34}

The next row will have an increase that creates the bell shape

NOTE: A this point, the cardigan should reach the top of your hips. If it doesn’t, add or take out rows as needed

Row 29 (31) [33] {35}: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, skip next dc and ch, v stitch in next dc, v stitch in next ch space, * v stitch in next dc, skip next dc and ch, v stitch in next dc, v stitch in next ch space* repeat from * to * across to last v stitch, dc in last stitch (28 v stitches, (31 v stitches), [34 v stitches], {37 v stitches} ,1 dc)

If the repeat doesn’t work out perfectly, that’s ok. It doesn’t matter exactly how many v stitches there are, just that a “bell” shape is created

(if you want the stripes as pictured, use stripe guide above)

Row 30 (32) [34] {36} – 66 (68) [70] {72}: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, *skip next dc and ch, v stitch in next dc* repeat from * to * across to last v stitch, dc in last stitch (28 v stitches, (31 v stitches), [34 v stitches], {37 v stitches} ,1 dc)

SEWING

Lay the two front pieces on top of the back. Sew across the shoulders with a whip stitch. I marked where to sew with stitch markers and then I used the long ends for sewing.

After sewing the shoulders I tried the cardigan on. I use a stitch marker to mark where I wanted the sleeves to be.

(As a guide, leave approximately 10 rows for a S, 12 rows for a M, 14 rows for a L, 16 rows for a XL — or wherever you want them 🙂 )

Sew the sides closed with a whip stitch. I used the long ends for sewing.

Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

SLEEVES

NOTES FOR THE SLEEVE:

  • I did not include the number of stitches for each round, as they might be a little different for everyone
  • You will be working in rounds
  • The offset V stitch will be made different than it was with the body of the sweater because you will be working in rounds
  • Sleeve measurements are from round 1 to the end, does not count the body of the cardigan

Join Color A

Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around (the amount needs to be a multiple of 3), join to first sc with sl st

Round 2: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, skip 2 stitches, *v stitch in next, skip 2 stitches* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Round 3: sl st over 2 stitches to the next dc, ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, skip next dc and ch, *v stitch in next, skip next dc and ch* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Round 4: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, skip ch and next dc, *v stitch in next, skip ch and next dc* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Repeat round 3 & 4 to round 9 (11) [13] {15}

The next row will have an increase that creates the bell shape

NOTE: At this point, the sleeve should reach approximately to your elbow. If it doesn’t, add or take out rows as needed

Round 10 (12) [14] {16}: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), dc in same stitch, *skip ch and next dc, v stitch in next, v stitch in ch space, skip next dc, v stitch in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st

If the repeat doesn’t work out perfectly, that’s ok. It doesn’t matter exactly how many v stitches there are, just that a “bell” shape is created

Repeat round 3 & 4 to round 27 (29) [31] {33} (stripe pattern below)

Stripes are as follows:

Begin stripes on round 22 (24) [26] {28}:

1 row of B, A, B, C, B, C

Sleeve should reach approximately to your wrist. If it doesn’t, add or take out rows as needed

Fasten off, weave in your ends

  1. I love all your work , i wish you did videos , I’m a big time visual learner and although I’ve been crocheting for many years i still get confused with patterns , especially when things need to be sewn together….. Any chance of you ever doing you tube videos

  2. Hi, really nice cardigan ! I’ll definitely try it !
    When you say 500gr for S/M, is it for main color or main + accent color?
    Thanks !

    1. If you wanted to do the stripes as pictured, I would say about 4 of the main color (khaki), 2 of the second (top stitch), 1 of the third (corduroy)
