Fall Favorite Classic Raglan Cardigan – FREE Crochet Pattern

You’re going to love the Fall Favorite Classic Raglan Cardigan, because it’s such a great addition to your fall wardrobe.

This free crochet cardigan pattern is also a great introduction to crocheting raglan garments, because it is so basic.

I first designed the crochet Classic Raglan Cardigan last year using Lion Brand Yarn. However,  since it was such a popular pattern, I decided I also wanted to rewrite the pattern to make it possible to use my Airy DK from Joy of Motion Yarn. 

On this page you can find the FREE version of the crochet pattern. But I’ve added a coupon code for the PDF version of the pattern further down on the page so you can get this for only $2 when sign up for my newsletter.

This crochet pattern comes in 8 sizes, & will fit both petite sized, regular & plus sizes.

 

 

THE YARN


The yarn base for this yarn is called Airy DK & is a chained yarn, that makes anything you crochet with it light while still offering density. 

What I’m most excited about is the fact that the yarn used is my own hand dyed yarn. 

The colors pictured is “Høstløv”. The name refers to autumn leaves!

THE PERFECT FALL CARDIGAN CROCHET PROJECT


Have you ever crocheted that perfect fall weather cardigan? That’s definitely how cozy this cardigan feels. 

But this is also truly a classic cardigan that you can use with anything & for any occasion.

It’s also a great cardigan for more than just 1 season, but since we’re in the middle of fall, I’ve made it in a yarn that fit’s well with this season.

 

Since you like the Fall Favorite Classic Raglan 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.

ABOUT THE PATTERN:


The crochet Classic Raglan Cardigan is the perfect basic garment for your fall wardrobe, & let’s fill it with cozy 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 easy project.

The Fall Favorite Classic Raglan Cardigan comes in 8 sizes from XS – 4XL & there’s also suggestions on how you can adjust it to fit you perfectly!

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

 

GAUGE:


Measured with half double crochet stitches crocheted in rows:

15 stitches & 14 rows per 10 cm / 4”.

 

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 8 sizes, where the different sizes is given in parenthesis like this: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL). 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:


**Includes front edges that crosses over.

*Measured before the decreases on the arms.

 

SIZE NOTES:

  • This pattern is written to have a very close to close fit, that means about 0-5 cm 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 2 before decreasing on row 3, or after row 56 or 57 before starting ribbing on row 57 or 58.
  • 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.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


You will need to use the half double crochet stitch, double crochet stitch, front post double crochet stitch.

 

FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (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.

 

Tutorial:

Foundation Single Crochet Stitch

 

 

FRONT POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH (FPdc):

Written description:

Yo, insert your hook from front to back between the prev st & the st you’re working, & bring it to the front again between the st you’re working & the next st, yo & pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on the hook, yo & pull through 2 of the 3 loops, yo and pull through the 2 last loops.

CROCHET TOGETHER 2 HALF DOUBLE CROCHET STITCHES (hdc2tog):
