Tweed Cardi Crochet Pattern

January 3, 2018

The Tweed Cardi Crochet Pattern is made with the pretty suzette stitch. For added texture and design, I used Caron Simply Soft Tweeds. You can find a detailed photo tutorial of this stitch HERE.

I love how the pattern and yarn go together for this cardigan! They make for a pretty combination in a neutral color that can match with almost anything. I made this cardigan with short sleeves but the sleeves can be made in any length. I think the short sleeves are plenty warm paired with a long sleeve T shirt. (here in the southwest anyway 😉 )

  1. Thanks for the terrific pattern. I think it would be perfect for my daughter. I hope to begin working on it soon. I’ll let you know how it turns out. She is slim and 6’2″ tall; any suggestion as to how long to make this sweater? Thanks

  2. I just finished making this super cute little cardigan last night. I made it in a pretty hot pink, perfect for spring. Pattern was very easy to follow and the stitch design was very unique, not just your basic double crochet. Thanks for the design.

  3. Trying to make this beauty cardi, but the gauge doesn’t add up – no matter what I do, I can’t get 7 rows to hit 4 inches – always 3 inches! I even tried a larger hook as I can crochet tight, still 3 inches. I am a tall girl, so I don’t want this to be too short! Prehaps I can just do extra rows?

  4. I have a quick questions about this -> ‘Row 2: ch 1, turn, (1 sc, 1 dc) all in first sc, skip the next dc, *(1 sc, 1 dc) in next sc, skip next dc* repeat from * to * across, sc in last stitch’ <- Which stitch does the last SC go into? The DC or the SC from the previous row?

  5. I’m just finishing this up in a dusty pink. I absolutely love this pattern and I cannot wait to wear my beautiful new Cardigan. Thanks so much for a super simple and well detailed pattern!
