Crochet Lavender Cocoon Cardigan Free Pattern: The Inspiration

If you recall, I had crocheted The Beatiful Lilac Shrug with a ribbed edging in April 2020. This crochet design is to this day one of my favorites! I wanted to crochet similar, with a different edging, and in more sizes too. Indeed, I love filet crochet projects so much!

If you also enjoy filet crochet designs, don’t forget to check out my recent Spring and Summer cardigan design. This newest cardigan project is so lovely, and features not only a filet crochet patter, but also delicate pockets that elevate this otherwise simple cardigan. This Summer pink poncho is also perfect if you enjoy filet crochet.

This Boho festival inspired headband also features a filet crochet design, just like this romantic lacy headband from a few Summers ago. I admit I love these designs, as they are so perfect for the warmer months. Indeed, these crochet projects are so feminine and look perfect year after year.

A few weeks ago, I figured it was high time I crocheted a new Spring Summer cocoon cardigan. When I went through my yarn stash, this new lilac yarn from Paintbox yarns stood out to me. It seemed perfect for this new project!

A few weeks ago, I was inspired to crochet a new filet crochet design shrug, inspired by the beautiful lilac shrug I crocheted in 2020. Indeed, I love this crochet design so much still! It is both easy and perfect for the warmer weather. I love the filet crochet design so much, and decided to recreate a new version.

This time, this crochet project comes in sizes S to XXXL. It also features a very feminine and delicate chain arch edging on the sleeves and front opening, which I love! At the moment, I am definitely in the mood to recreate some of my earlier projects. I am planning on recreating a newer version of this delicate and romantic headband with flowers. This recreation will be available on both my Youtube channel and blog in the coming weeks, so watch this space!
