Crochet Cropped Cardigan with minimal shaping. 

 

crochet crop cardigan in cream color

 

When I tested this crochet crop cardigan for the second time, I ran out of yarn. So you now have 2 versions now, one with sleeves and one without.

The texture of this cropped cardigan pattern is stunning yet as easy as it can get for a beginner. The cardigan itself has minimal shaping and is a joy to make. If you are not into cropped cardigans you can try my crochet long cardigan pattern.

When I made my first one, the decrease rows left holes on the sides. So, I had to redesign the pattern to make a more solid fabric.

I have always wanted to design a button cardigan and this is my first. I must say I really enjoyed the process and will be designing more of them.

Stitch Explanations

Front post double crochet (fpdc) and Back post double crochet (bpdc): See a tutorial for front and back post double crochet on my blog here: Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet Tutorial.

 

Front post single crochet(fpsc): It is worked like a regular sc except for the way you insert your hook. See the same tutorial for front post double crochet above. The hook is inserted in the same way for a fpsc.

 

dc2tog: YO, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops. Keeping the remaining 2 loops on your hook, YO, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through all the remaining 3 loops on hook.—-dc2tog completed

 

Gauge

Pattern for Gauge Swatch

Chain 38 and follow rows 1 to 3 for the right front panel below. You will have 9 projections. Keep repeating Row 3 until your piece measures 6 inches. Then measure for gauge.

 

Gauge

Using J(6mm) Hook,

3.5 projections = 4 inches long

4 Bumpy lines(8 Rows)= 4 inches

Each row adds 1/2 inch to the length of your cardigan. Use any size hook to attain gauge.

Assembling the Front and Back Panels

 

Place the front panels on the back panel and seam the sides laving gap for armhole

16. Place the front panels on the back panel and seam as shown

 

You placed a marker on the RS for all your 3 pieces. If you forgot to do that, you can identify the RS by looking where your beginning tail is. If the beginning tail is on the bottom right corner, you have the RS facing up. 

 

Place the front panels on the back panel with the right sides touching each other as shown in pic 16 above.  The foundation chain side will form the bottom of the cardigan. Seam the shoulders with a whip stitch first, and then seam the sides leaving a 7 (7, 8) (8, 9, 9)” gap for the armhole. 

 

 

Bottom Ribbing

Notes

1. Use the smaller I(5.5mm) hook for the ribbing. 

2. The first row of fpdc and bpdc is worked around the post of our very first row of sc sts. 

 

Row 1: Turn the cardigan right side out, sl st to the bottom left corner, ch 2 (counts as a dc), *(1 fpdc around the post of the next sc, bpdc around the post of the next sc), repeat from *  to the side seam, 1 dc in the side seam, continue the sequence of fpdc and bpdc until you hit the next side seam, 1 dc in the side seam, continue the sequence of fpdc and bpdc until you reach the next corner, 1 dc in the corner, turn. 

 

Row 2: Ch 2, fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across to beginning ch 2, 1 dc on top of beg ch, turn. 

 

Keep repeating Row 2 until your ribbing is 2-1/2 inches. Fasten off. 

 

Collar Ribbing

Notes

1. Use the smaller I(5.5mm) hook for the ribbing. 

 

Row 1: Working on the RS of the cardigan, sl st to the bottom left corner of the front opening, ch 2 (counts as a hdc), distribute hdc sts all across the front opening as evenly as possible, turn. When working into beginning chains, make sure you don’t go through the very edge to avoid leaving holes in your work. Catching one extra loop under the beginning chain will help. 

Row 2: Ch 2, *(fpdc in next st, bpdc in next st), repeat from * to beginning ch, 1 dc on top of beginning ch, turn.

 

Note: Now place markers for 4 buttonholes on the left side of the opening. Your marker for the bottom-most buttonhole should be at the 4th st from the bottom. Your top buttonhole should be at the level of the 19th(19th, 21st) (21st, 23rd, 23rd) repeat row from the bottom. 

 

Row 3: Ch 2, fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across until you reach the first marked st, ch 1, sk the marked st, *(fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across until you reach the next marked st, ch 1, sk the marked st), repeat from * 2 more times, continue fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across to beginning ch, 1 dc on top of beginning ch, turn.

 

Row 4:  Ch 2, work fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc, and every time you hit a ch-1 for the buttonhole, work a dc into the ch-1 space and continue the sequence of fpdc into fpdc and bpdc into bpdc all the way to beginning ch, 1 hdc on top of beginning ch, turn.

 

Row 5:  Ch 2, fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across to beginning ch, 1 hdc on top of beginning ch, fasten off. 

 

Sleeve Ribbing (Only for Vest)

Note: The sleeve ribbing is worked with the smaller I(5.5mm) hook. 

 

Round 1: Sl st to the underarm seam, ch 2 (counts as a hdc), distribute hdc sts all around the armhole, sl st to beginning ch-2, do not turn. 

 

Round 2: Ch 2, *(fpdc in next hdc, bpdc in next hdc), repeat from * to end, sl st to beg ch-2, do not turn. 

 

 Round 3: Ch 2, fpdc in each fpdc and bpdc in each bpdc across to end, sl st t beginning ch-2. Fasten off. 

Weave in the ends and sew on the buttons to finish your vest. 

 

Sleeves for Cardigan

Note: We will make the sleeves slightly smaller than the armhole and stretch to join it. This will make sure our sleeves don’t look too bulky. 

 

With bigger hook J(6mm), ch 46 (46, 54) (54, 62, 62)

Row 1: 1sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across to end.———45 (45, 53) (53, 61, 61)sc sts

 

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), 2 dc in the same st as ch 3, *[sk 3 sts, (1sc, ch 3, 3dc) all into the next st], repeat from * until 4 sts left, sk 3 sts, 1 sc in last st, place a marker on this side of the fabric to indicate the Right Side(RS) of your work and then turn. ————11 (11, 13) (13, 15, 15) projections or repeats

 

Row 3: Ch 3, 2 dc in the same st as ch 3, *[sk 2 dc, fpsc in next dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the adjacent ch-3 space], repeat from * and after 3 dc in last ch-3 space, sk next 2 dc, fpsc around beginning ch 3, turn.——– 11 (11, 13) (13, 15, 15) projections or repeats

 

 Your work should measure approximately 12(12, 14) (14, 16, 16) inches wide. 

 

Keep repeating Row 3 until your work measures 14(14, 14.5) (14.5, 15, 15) inches. 

 

Leveling Row

Pattern Notes

1. In the leveling row we will also add decreases to prep our sleeves for the ribbing part. 

2. While working the leveling row, we will skip the ch 3 loops in between and work only into the dc and sc sts. 

 

Sizes S and M only

Leveling Row: Ch 2(counts as a st), *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, 1 dc in next 4 sts), repeat from * one more time, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts), repeat from * 3 more times, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts), repeat from * one more time, turn.——–37 sts

 

Sizes L and XL only

Row 1: Ch 2(counts as a st), *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts), repeat from * one more time, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 2 sts), repeat from * 7 more times, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts), repeat from * one more time, turn.——–41 sts

 

Sizes 2XL and 3XL only

Row 1: Ch 2(counts as a st), *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts), repeat from * one more time, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next st, dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 2 sts), repeat from * 5 more times, *(dc2tog across next 2 sts, dc in next 2 sts), repeat from * one more time, turn.——45 sts

 

 

Sleeve Ribbing-All Sizes

Note: Switch to the smaller I(5.5mm) hook.

 

 

Finished sleeve for size Small with ribbed cuff

17. Finished sleeve for size S 

 

 

Note: For the next round, dc2tog counts as a single st, so when your work a fpdc into it, make sure you insert your hook under the combined post. 

 

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as a st), *(1 fpdc in next st, 1 bpdc in next st), repeat from * to beginning ch, 1 dc on top of beginning ch, turn.——-37(37, 41) (41, 45, 45) sts

 

Row 3: Ch 2( counts as a st), bpdc in each bpdc and fpdc in each fpdc across to beginning ch, 1 dc on top of beginning ch, turn.——–37(37, 41) (41, 45, 45) sts

 

Keep repeating Row 2 until your ribbing measures 2 inches for sizes up to L and 2-1/2 inches for bigger sizes.

 

 Fold the sleeve in half with the Wrong side facing outside and seam the bottom with a whip stitch. 

 

Joining Sleeves to the Cardigan

 Insert sleeve into the armhole with right side facing out

18. Insert sleeve into the armhole as shown

 

Work around the opening to join the sleeve to the body

19. Join the sleeve to the body with whip stitches

Place the cardigan with the wrong side out and the sleeve with the right side out. Insert sleeve through the armhole, align the edges and join them together with a whip stitch seam.

Make sure you grab about 1/4 inch of fabric when you whip stitch and do not go through the very edge. This will make sure our heavy sleeve holds well onto the body of the cardigan. See pic 20 below. 

 

Grab about 1/4 inch of fabric when you whip stitch the sleeve to the body

20. Grab about 1/4 inch of fabric when you whip stitch the sleeve to the body

 

 

Finishing

Add the buttons corresponding to the buttonholes. Weave in any tails left.

Hi sleeve levelling rows are baffling me. Beginning "dc2t dc3" There aren't 3 to dc if we are ignoring "ch3's" then proceed "dc2t dc2" still not enough stitches as there are only 3 fpdc to work on. 🤔

I made an error on my post so re writing. I don't get levelling row on sleeves. You only work dc and sc. and ignore ch 3's. But it says dc2t then dc3 at beginning then proceed dc2t dc2 but tgere arent enough dc and there isnt a sc to do this, you only have 3 front posts and if you ignore 3ch it makes a big lump. Please help 🇮🇲

Hello i just dont understand levelling row on sleeves its not making sense to me. You only work sc and dc leaving out ch3. It still doesnt work you dc2t then ch3 at beginning then dc2tog rest but there are only 3 stitches the 3 front posts and if you ignor ch 3 it leaves a big lump

Decrease Row 3 "and after 3 dc in last ch-3 space, sk next 2 dc, insert your hook around the post of the next dc and pull up a loop like you are starting a fpsc, sk next 2 dc, insert your hook around the post of the beginning ch-3 "

This isn't possible because when you do the 3 dc in last ch-3 sp, there is only the 2 dc and ch 3 to contend with because row 2 starts (ch 3, 2 dc in same space). So there's no additional dc to skip UNLESS you don't put 3 dc in last ch-3 sp

The ch-3 counts as a dc too. So skip the 2 dc and work around the ch-3.
