THE YARN


For the crochet Nivis Cardigan the suggested yarn is from Wool and The Gang. This amazing yarn is called Feeling Good & comes in a lot of beautiful colors.

What’s especially great about this yarn is how soft it is. Which makes it impossible to make anything that isn’t super cozy & great to wear.

The yarn is made up of Baby Alpaca 70% / Merino 7% and Nylon 23%.

THE COZIEST CROCHET CARDIGAN


Have you ever tried the Feeling Good Yarn from Wool and the Gang? 

Well, it makes the coziest & most cardigan ever! 

It’s soft & super cozy to wear, but I also love that this yarn is great to crochet with.

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.

ABOUT THE PATTERN:


The crochet Nivis Cardigan is the perfect cozy garment for your wardrobe, & let’s fill it with crocheted clothes.

To crochet this cardigan you have to have a bit of crochet experience since the skill level is intermediate. However I would absolutely say that if you’ve crocheted a few projects already, this might still feel like a rather easy project, especially if you’ve tried crocheting cables.

The crochet Nivis Cardigan comes in 9 sizes from XS – 5XL & there’s also suggestions on how you can adjust it to fit you perfectly!

  • 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).

Size adjustments are added under “Size & Measurements”.

  • The 8 stitch wide cable on the yoke & arms will be made using the row repeats listed in the stitches you will need section. In the instructions you’ll only find the word “cable”.
