The pockets, which are adorned with a chain arch edging, really elevate the look of this cardigan.

Crochet Spring Summer Cardigan Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this new project, I used Caron Angel Cotton Cake yarn. I absolutely love this yarn! It is so pretty and has a distinct cotton vibe to it. Indeed, it is made of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. It is very soft and I love how it is called an “Angel Cotton Cake”. This yarn really is angelical!

I love this yarn and have previously used it to make some Sunburst Granny Squares. However, I have not yet released the project for which I made all these Sunburst Granny Squares as these are for a cardigan, and I have not yet sewed all the crochets together. However, I am very determined to finish this cardigan this Spring, so get excited for a Sunburst Granny Square Cardigan being released very soon.

I love using Caron Cakes for my projects. This recent Cocoon Cardigan was crocheted using Caron Cakes (the classic original cakes). I love this yarn so much! The Coconut Cream Cardigan has been hugely popular, and was crocheted with Caron Latte Cakes. And more recently, the  was crocheted using Caron Baby Cakes (one of my all time favorite yarns!).

I hope you enjoy this new crochet tutorial, it is so easy and perfect for Spring and Summer. Let me know in the comments if you make this cardigan.

To sew your cardigan together

With wrong side facing, place your sleeves flat and fold in half (make sure you fold them so that the rows are vertical, not horizontal).

With tapestry needle and yarn, sew your seam up so as to create your sleeves.

Do not turn inside out yet.

With wrong side facing, place your back panel onto a flat surface. Place your 2 front panels symmetrically, start sewing the shoulder seams straight across (see photo below).

Place front panels on top of the back panel

Once this is done, sew your sleeves onto each side of the cardigan. To do this, place your sleeve at the top of the cardigan on each side, so that the top of each sleeve joins the top of the body of the cardigan. Make sure the seams of your sleeves are facing down.

Add sleeve to the project

Now attach a piece of yarn to the top of the cardigan, where the top front panel is touching the sleeve; start sewing the sleeve and front panel together. Once you reach the bottom side of the sleeve, just carry on sewing the front and back panels together, without stopping. When you reach the bottom of the cardigan, fasten off.

Now turn your project around so as to sew in the back part of your sleeve to the back panel. Attach yarn at the top of shoulder, and sew both parts together. Once you reach the bottom of the sleeve, fasten off.

Repeat this process on the other side of the cardigan.

Add border to the bottom of the cardigan

With 4,5 mm crochet hook

Attach yarn to either bottom edge of the front opening.

1: Ch 1 (=SC), SC into next stitch until eor all the way around the bottom of cardigan, until you reach the first ch 1. Sl st to the first ch 1 to close off round.

2: Ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work, HDC into next st until eor.

3-6: Repeat row 2.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Add cuff edging (repeat process on both sleeve cuffs)

With 4,5 mm crochet hook

Attach yarn to first sleeve end (attach yarn to any stitch on the sleeve end).

1: Ch 1 (counts as a SC), sk one stitch. [Place a SC into next stitch, sk a stitch] until eor. Sl stitch to first ch 1 to close round.

2: Ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work, HDC into next st until eor.

3-6: Repeat row 2.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Add edging to the front opening of the cardigan

With 5 mm crochet hook

Attach yarn to the front opening of the cardigan; attach yarn to the first stitch at the bottom of either side of the front opening.

1: Ch 1 (=SC), place a SC into next stitch until eor all the way around the front of cardigan, until you reach the other side of the front opening. Make sure you place a SC evenly all across the front opening as there may not always be an actual stitch into which you will place each SC across this edge.

2: Ch 2 (=HDC), turn your work, place a HDC into each SC from previous row until eor.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

    I’m confused about row 38,39, and 40 when making a medium. row 38 is repeating row 5 then row 39 says to repeat row 4 and 40 is repeating 5. within these rows there would be no filet row, but in your video tutorial it looks like perfect repetition. Can you help me?

      Hi and thank you for commenting!
      So I have checked my cardigan and my pattern, and it seems right. Your last rows will be “full” rows, and therefore there will not be any filet crochet row when you reach the very bottom of the cardigan. This is part of the design.
      I hope this helps!
