Puff Stitch Crochet Cardigan Pattern

November 8, 2017

This Puff Stitch Crochet Cardigan Pattern is quick and easy to make. Made from just 2 rectangles!

The rectangles are made from a simple 2 row repeat that works up quick. With the puff stitches, this project is a yarn eater and I used just over 444 yards of super bulky yarn.

I used super bulky yarn for this wearable, so it’s super warm! I was able to wear it over a tank, but it would also be really cute with a long sleeve tee and some jeans for colder days.

and P.S., isn’t this skirt the CUTEST? I got it from Eek’s Attic for a crazy reasonable price! Check her out 🙂 (that’s not an affiliate link, I just really love her shop!)

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

  1. Hi Breann-
    I love this Cardi. Would you be kind enough to tell me what size is on the model? It will help me to decided whether to make the small/Med or the Large/extra lg.
    Also, what measurement do you suggest to leave open for the armholes?
    Thank you very much.
