HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).
  • This pattern is written for 9 sizes, where the different sizes is given in parenthesis like this: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL. If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin to make the pattern easier to follow. Size adjustments are added under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.

 

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:


FREE Crochet Classic Raglan Cardigan - Super Bulky

 

SIZE NOTES:

  • This pattern is written to have a standard fit, that means about 5-10 cm positive ease.
  • Take measurements to find the size that fits the best.

 

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS:

  • Note: Any size adjustments affect yarn usage & you might need more/less yarn than suggested.

 

Sleeves:

  • For all sizes: Best places to adjust length by adding or reducing rows are: After row 1 before decreasing, or after row 27 before crocheting single crochet edge on row 28.
  • For all sizes: Skip decreases to make the arm wider.
  • For all sizes: Decrease more frequently in the same manner to make the arm narrower.

 

Body:

  • For all sizes: Adjust length by adding or reducing rows at the end.

Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Step 3: Insert hook into previous “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

  1. This is a brilliant pattern – so easy to follow and crochets up in no time at all! It fits really well and was very easy to adapt. ( I used chunky wool and a 10mm hook but had no problems). Now I have to decide how many of these I can fit in my wardrobe – I’d like several different colours!
