Elegant Crochet Cardigan Pattern, Grace Bell Sleeve Cardigan

Share the Love!

Who wouldn’t love a crochet cardigan pattern that is easy to work up but gives gorgeous results?

If you have tried my 7 hour Cocoon cardigan, then you know how fast this stitch pattern grows and how gorgeous it looks.


You can pin it for later here.


Lion brand Heartland yarn was used to design this cardigan. A big hook is used with a lightweight worsted weight yarn to give just the right amount of drape for this pattern.


The asymmetrical hem and the bell sleeves on this lacy crochet cardigan pattern will make it a wardrobe staple. This is a very versatile long crochet cardigan that can be paired with a skirt or a pair of jeans. I named this cardigan Grace as it is a very elegant pattern.


Writing and testing the pattern took longer than expected as each size had its own requirements, but I am beyond pleased with the results. I will be keeping this one for myself :).

I found this pattern and a few others last night I wanted to purchase but I fell asleep and for some reason when I opened up my phone this morning the page was blank. Could you tell me what sites you have this listed on, if it’s yours, so I can purchase this and the others I wanted, please and thank you.

How much yarn should I buy for the extra large size.

You will need around 2010 yards of yarn. That will be 8 skeins if you are using Lionbrand Heartland yarn.

Would a beginner be able to make this cardigan? Thank you

Yes, you just need to know how to work a double crochet decrease to shape the sleeves. The armholes don't involve shaping.
