THE YARN


For this crochet pattern I used a beautiful yarn from Lion Brand Yarn called Comfy Cotton Blend. It is a yarn that comes in 11 colors. 10 of them has really beautiful color combos, while 1 comes in a solid color.

Pictured are the beautiful color combo called Chai Latte.

The yarn is a mix between cotton & polyester.

The yarn comes in 200 gram cakes, which makes it super easy to use 1 skein to make rather large projects. For this pattern you only need 2 skeins & that means less yarn ends to weave in.

You can find the Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend here.

THE PERFECT FALL GARMENT CROCHET PROJECT


The crochet Mollis wrap cardigan is definitely the perfect crochet project for fall. It’s super cozy, easy to make & super rewarding because it works up fast.

You will absolutely enjoy crocheting this pattern, because the end result is so beautiful.

For fall it’s easy to get into always crochet hats, headbands & mittens, but crochet garments is such a great addition to your wardrobe.

What’s most fun about crocheted wrap cardigans is the fact that they are super handy to grab when you’re a little bit cold. Tip, make it in a color that works with almost any outfit!

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.

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).

ABBREVIATIONS:


BLhdc = back loop half double crochet

ch = chain (s) (tutorial)

ch-2-sp = refers to chain or space previously made, with 2 ch

FSC = foundation single crochet

hdc = half double crochet (tutorial)

rep = repeat

sc = single crochet (tutorial)

sl st = slip stitch (tutorial)

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC):

Written description:

Step 1: Ch 2 st.

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.

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED: 


CROCHETING IN THE FRONT & BACK LOOP:

This means that you will not crochet through the whole stitch as usual. A typical stitch contains two loops. One in the front, nearest you, and another stitch in the back, furthest away from you. One is called the front loop (the one nearest you), the other one the back loop, the one furthest away from you. For this pattern you will crochet half double crochet stitches through the back loop.

 

CHAIN SPACES:

You will need to know how to crochet in chain spaces. Chain spaces are formed when you chain one or more stitches, then skip one or more stitches, & finally you crochet in the next stitch.

In this pattern you will make chain spaces with 2 chains on one row, and crochet two half double crochet stitches into the chain space on the next row.

  1. On this cardigan, I myself would like to make it about 12 inches longer so it would hang below the backside. I think that would look very nice.

    • Hi Terri,

      Yes, it would look beautiful longer.

      The gauge for the pattern is 15 stitches per 4 inch.

      Adding 12 inches would require 45 stitches extra.
      However, that will not work with the stitch pattern of 4 stitches.

      To make it about 12 inches longer you would need to add 44 stitches at the beginning.
