Crochet Flavus Cardigan – FREE Crochet Pattern

crochet flavus cardigan free crochet pattern (13)

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite designs on the blog, the crochet Flavus Cardigan.

When I first designed this cardigan I only shared my patterns as paid patterns, but slowly I’ve been transitioning to free patterns.

There’s a lot to love about the crochet Flavus cardigan. First of all it’s a top down cardigan, which means you can easily pick you size as you go.

Next, it comes in 9 sizes, which also means you’ll most likely find a size that works well for you.

Finally, it’s fun to see the stitch details emerge as you crochet it.

THE YARN


To crochet this cardigan I used Woolspun from Lion Brand yarn

Unfortunately it they decided to discontinue this yarn in 2018, but if you’re lucky you might still be able to snag enough yarn needed for this cardigan at a low price. 

 

Look for it here.

 

If you can’t find it, you can definitely substitute for a different #5 Bulky yarn.

THE PERFECT CROCHET CARDIGAN FOR SPRING 


During Spring I personally love to grab a crocheted jacket instead of a heavier outerwear piece. 

Since it’s still rather cold outside, I think it’s great to have a cardigan with a thicker yarn, but still not too hot. 

 

Imagine wearing this during the colder mornings & evenings.

 

Since you like the Crochet Flavus Cardigan, these might interest you too?

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 “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis. It includes 2 starting chains.
  • The puff stitches will not lay flat while you crochet, but after blocking this will not be a problem.
