This is my first crochet cardigan pattern for women. I wanted to start off with a design that has minimal shaping and a cocoon crochet cardigan pattern was the best choice. I anticipated that I will be working on this for a week but to my surprise, I finished the size Small in under 7 hours. The bigger ones might take a couple of hours extra, but this will be a pattern that will work up very quickly for a garment. I had bought Vanna’s choice yarn on sale during Thanksgiving and do you know what the cost of this crochet cardigan sweater turned out to be? Under 15 dollars! Sizes Small to Large need only 8 skeins of yarn. Isn’t that amazing? A sweater that won’t break your back or the bank. I hope you will enjoy working on this pattern.
