Crochet The Angel Wings Cardigan Free Pattern: The Inspiration

The Angel Wings Cardigan is so beautiful and feminine. It is crocheted with a fine light 3/DK yarn which is very soft and delicate. Indeed, I used Emu’s Treasure DK in shade Baby Pink. This yarn is so beautiful, and has become one of my favorite yarns ever since I have discovered it. I crocheted the Edwardian Era Wrap has been crocheted with this lovely yarn.

The Angel Wings Cardigan is so feminine!

If you live in the USA and Canada you can substitute this yarn for Bernat Softee Baby yarn. Both these yarns are very similar and are very soft and beautiful. I used this yarn for The Lily Hexagon Cardigan, which is so beautiful and fine. The Pretty Knot Wrap is also crocheted with Bernat Softee Baby yarn, and it is so delicate and feminine.

The Juliette Vintage French Wrap is also a perfect example of a lovely fine yarn. All these lovely accessories and items look beautiful and very delicate because the yarn is so fine. Crocheting with fine light 3/DK yarn is very pleasant and makes for very delicate looking items.

Crochet The Angel Wings Cardigan Free Pattern: The Name

I decided to call this cardigan the Angel Wings Cardigan because I love angels so much. At the moment, I feel like angelic activity is even more present than usual; I really wanted to crochet a cardigan that put me in mind of an angel.

The bell sleeves and the delicate design are really inspired by the grace and beauty which emanates from angels. The soft color and pearly buttons also add to the beauty and delicate look of this cardigan. I decided to use a simple yet pretty stitch for this cardigan. This cardigan is versatile and can be worn in every season too. I personally can’t wait to wear this cardigan!

This is such a cute project!

I crocheted The Pastel Patchwork Cardigan recently, and it is also a very lovely and feminine cardigan to make and wear. A few years ago I crocheted the Iconic Patchwork Cardigan which is so beautiful and also easy to make. For the winter time, you can also have a look at the Coconut Cream Cardigan, made with Caron Latte Cakes.

Let me know if you love crochet cardigans as much as I do!

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 horizontal, see photo).

With tapestry needle and yarn, sew your seam across 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 front facing on each side of the back panel symmetrically, making sure the corners of the front and back panels are symmetrical and touching.

Start sewing the shoulder seams straight across (see photo below).

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.

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.
