Hi fiber friends! Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Catalina Cardigan Crochet Along! The Catalina Cardigan Crochet Pattern is a beginner level cardigan pattern. It’s made as almost one piece and has very little sewing. I will have a video tutorial to help every step of the way!
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).
