This pattern is designed for use with 6 skeins (550 yards each - 3300 total yards) of our Superwash Merino Silk Pearlescent Fingering Weight yarn in colorway: ELVEN GROVE. The yarn is held double throughout the entire project. Choose any color you like, though. You'll need a US Size H hook (5.00 mm).
Notes From the Designer:
•A cozy cardigan with a row of geometric cables along each side.
•This sweater is made using two strands of Pearlescent Fingering Weight yarn held together. This would be gorgeous made into a gradient sweater! Use various colors to blend and fade into one another.
•This is worked from the top down.
•The pattern is written with 2 inches of positive ease. Finished bust size 38(43, 47, 52, 56)" indicated with sizes S(M, L, XL, XXL). Shown in size S.
•The pattern includes a diagram for stitch marker placement and a schematic for sizing.
•Instructions for full length and 3/4 length sleeves are included.
•Reversible design. It's true! Turn it inside out and you'll have a slightly different look!
- I designed this cardigan to be comfortable enough to wear with your favorite pair of jeans while exploring your favorite apple orchard or pumpkin patch.
- The cable pattern on each side of the front panels resemble leaves from the trees when you block your cardigan and pin them open. The back side of these cables contains rows of puff or popcorn stitch, making the cardigan reversible.
- I'm a huge fan of textured stitches and incorporated them into the main design feature and also into the border.
- This pattern is totally customizable with directions for full length sleeves and also 3/4 length. More rows may be added to the body and to each sleeve for a fuller version.

Enjoy your crocheting!
Oh my gosh!
the crocheted cable front is so lovely
I was having a little problem with the pattern, I'm a beginner but after watching the YouTube video I was a knitting machine lol!
very feminine and easy to make. thank youuuu
A wonderful pattern, so easy to follow and beautiful.
I wish I could have crocheted this. I’ve crocheted for 40 years. This was too difficult because even though I am not a chart crocheted, the breakdown & comparison would have been nice to compare. I contacted customer service twice. They were wonderful with an answer. I sat at a desk & concentrated & counted & crocheted. I was only on row 3! I looked ahead & most of the pattern was extreme written concentration. I appreciate & value your priduct. This one was just not for me. If you have a chart to go along with the written. It would be five star!!
Semplice ma bella per abbigliamento casual o elegante
I love that you always include options for crochet. Thank you so much!
I love this - I don't often crochet and was a bit nervous about doing this one, but the instructions are so clear it's given me the cofidence to do it and I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks.
Great pattern. Great cardigan!
Beautiful little cardi/jacket.
Just got yarn so I may start this .. Thank you
I love the simple but elegant design of this cardigan. Chandi I have yet to make it though. I am saving my money to be able to purchase some of your beautiful yarn so that I can make it. I love so many of your patterns and yarn. Thank you for your beautiful inspirational designs. Have blessed weekend.
I want to attempt this pattern for myself and my first sweater. The pattern looks easy to follow. Have not started it yet.
I have not started this pattern yet but know later this Fall I will be getting cozy with this pattern and Expression Fiber Arts yarn. It is great to have a crochet cardigan pattern. Thanks for all the options available for those of us who only crochet! Joyfully, Marylou
What an awesome pattern. Easy instructions and easy to follow. Using the Mohair fingering sock yarn is a must.
There are several things that I love about this pattern. Instructions are given in several sizes, it is custom able, it is reversible, and it is so pretty. I’ve never made a sweater, and am looking forward to making it.
I usually knit but this made me want to crochet again.
Instructions easly to follow, beautiful design
Very easy to follow, and beautiful design!
A well written, easy to follow pattern, the cardi has turned out beautifully thank you for a lovely free pattern
Pattern has interesting details to make it interesting to create and is a cute design.
At first when I saw the pages and pages of directions I was a bit scared that it would be too advanced for me but after taking the time to read through some of it I feel comfortable starting and fairly confident that my finished Cardi will be as pretty the pictures. I think I'm gonna make mine in a blush or denim color because green isn't my thing.
The pattern is easy to follow. I have not received my yarn yet, but I cannot wait to wear mine Cardi.
This is a lovely pattern but I haven't tried it yet. There aren't many crochet cardigan patterns around so can't wait to try this one!
I think the cardigan is lovely and the pattern appears to be well written. I don't plan to start it until after the New Year.
Thanks for the freebie!
Cannot wait to make this gorgeous cardigan. Now to buy the yarn!!
Found the pattern very difficult. The length of row 3s instructions was daunting at best. I love your colors and love this pattern or I should say the look of the cardi, but will need to rewrite the instructions so that I know what is going on. I’m not a needy crocheter, not a ninja either. But I found this nearly impossible and in the give up file.
I like the versatility of this pattern. Easy to follow directions as all of Expression Fiber Arts patterns are. Can't wait to make it!
