For this crochet garment you’ll need some warm yarn. The crochet Regelo Cardigan was designed using Bernat Roving.

What’s amazing about this yarn is the fact that is super soft & feels great against the skin.

It’s a combination between wool & acrylic, which makes it both warm & comfy.

You can find the Bernat Roving yarn here.



The crochet Regelo cardigan is for sure the perfect crochet project for fall. It’s super cozy, easy to make & fun because it works up fast.

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

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

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. 







The Regelo Cardigan crochet pattern makes a really warm & cozy crochet cardigan. It’s made with a big hook & thick yarn, & because of that you’ll be able to make it in just a few hours crocheting.

The pattern has 4 sizes available, & will fit from S to 5XL.

This crochet cardigan is made in just one piece.

Written description:

Written description: 2x yo draw up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through 2 loops, 2x yo draw up a loop from same st, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through 3 loops.



Double Treble Crochet Stitch Cluster



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 prev “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.



Foundation Single Crochet



You will need to know how to change colors in crochet with different color on different rows.



When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row with one color, with the color you where working with.

Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this for every row you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.

  • I haven’t attempted this yet but it is super cute! I am wondering if I can use regular yarn. I’m not a fan of the chunky yarn. I’m a bigger lady and I don’t need the extra bulk. 🙂

    • Hi,

      yes, in my opinion you can make anything with any yarn. However you also will have to make some adjustments.

      Here’s a link to some info on substituting yarn:

      For this specific cardigan you should go down significantly in crochet hook size when changing to a thinner yarn.
      However this may also mean that you will need to make extra stitches & rows.

      I suggest starting & making adjustments along the way.

      1. See if the stitch count makes it as long as you’d like or add more.
      2. Then when making one of the sides, check if it is wide enough. Or add extra rows.
      3. Same goes when crocheting the arms.

      Make notes of any adjustments you make, in that way you remember as you go along.

      Hope this helps 🙂

      I’ve had multiple requests for this in thinner yarn & I might a similar pattern with thinner yarn in the future 🙂
