What is a Crochet Along?
A crochet along is when we work on a project all together at the same time. It’s a great way to have fun with fellow crocheters all over the world!

Be sure to join my Facebook group HERE for the lastest details, to ask questions, share your work, and talk with fellow crocheters!

We will work on the Catalina Cardigan over the course of 4 weeks. For week 1 we will work on the bottom half of the body and then the top half in week 2. In week 3, the sleeves are made. Lastly, in week 4 we’ll finish up with the collar and pockets. And you’ll have a comfy cardigan just in time for the fall season!

Each week a new part of the pattern will be posted. It will be posted on Monday’s at 6 AM PST. I’ll have a that week’s part of the pattern available for FREE on my blog (along with a video tutorial), OR you will be able to purchase the full PDF in my shops (if you would rather have the pattern as one full document).

  1. I like easy patterns so will look forward to this cardigan. Just going to look in my yarn stash now for the right yarn

      1. Hi Breann, how many chains to start the gauge? This will be my first time doing a gauge and a cardigan.
        Thanks in advance

          1. Thanks. I did 2: one is 6 V, 9rows with 5.5 hook, but measure is 4×5. The other one is 4 V , 9 rows, 5.5 hook. This one is 4×4, perfect measure. So, now what I am not sure is how to use this information when I get your instructions. Can you help me? Thanks again.

          2. I have a problem in that I’m down to a 3.5mm hook and am only fitting 5 v-stitches and 9 rows for 4.5 inches. Nothing is matching the gauge.

  2. looks lovely would enjoy making and and wearing this . as i love to crochet am now making a pullover sweater in caron cakes.

    1. I’m looking forward to this CAL! I’ve been wanting to make a cardigan!
      Thanks so much!

  3. Hi Breann!
    You did it again! Another beautiful pattern that I’ll be bookmarking and making. Thank you so much for sharing your patterns and your talent.

  4. Looking forward to doing this! Already have my caron cotton cakes ready to go. Will actually do the swatch this ,😆

  5. Hi Breann! This is beautiful and I can’t wait to get started! 😊 Do you know about how much positive ease there is? It will help me decide between making a medium or large.

  6. Hi,
    I have not made anything for myself before, but want to make your sweater. I will need to make a large based on the bust inches above you provided. I am 5′ , like you, but MUCH older and not nearly as talented. I must admit I am a little scared and excited about the CAL. I have some yarn that I purchased awhile back for a coat, that I never have made. I think this would be enough for the sweater. Would you, please, tell me how many yards this pattern requires?
    Thank you.

  7. I love the look of this sweater! I worked up a swatch…measured up right! So excited to work this with you!!

  8. Can’t wait to start this CAL, I have been wanting to crochet a cardigan for some time now. One question, how or where do I measure armhole width?

  9. Hi Breann I have a question, which might sound stupid. What is a worsted weight yarn. I live in Namibia and our yarn is not marked like that. We get cotton, and then 3 ply, 4 ply, double knit, chunky. I would like to start with the cardigan but need to know what weight yarn to buy. Hope the question is not too stupid. Thanks Annerose

    1. Worsted weight is Aran weight here (south Africa). It’s between DK and chunky. If you get the Elle yarns in Namibia then look at their Aran yarns, also two strands of Dk may work. I sometimes do the wpi (wraps per inch) test to see what works best. Google it. Hope that helps.

    2. Annerose, I’m your neighbor in South Africa, from what I can understand is worsted weight is Aran weight here, sometimes using two strands of dk would work, I usually use the Wpi (wraps per inch) test to Guage which yarn would work best (Google it, it is very helpful). 4ply here is more like fingering weight.

    3. Hi, lion brand heartland is equivalent to Aran in the UK – weight 4. I’ve gone for Sirdar no 1 for mine 🙂

  10. Is there anywhere to get the pattern ahead of time?
    I bought the yarn today. Looking forward to the CAL,
    But it’d be nice to see the pattern first.

  11. Any chance you can tell us how big the pockets will be so I can turn my swatch into a pocket? 😄

  12. Hi Brianne, Looking forward to making this sweater. In the information listed here, would you please include a link to your single crochet chainless foundation stitch? I have never been great at this stitch and need to practice. I do not find it at this blog. Thank you.

  13. I have never made a garment. Excited to try your CAL. Purchased yarn today. Swatching later this evening.
