Relaxed Cardis & Cocoons: 9 Cozy Crochet Patterns

quick cardis

On dreary, cold winter days, when I have no intention of leaving the house, there’s nothing like staying cozy while I crochet with my kitties. And a stay-in-my-pjs day isn’t complete without plenty of coffee, a bit of the ID channel, and my favorite handmade cardigan. I’ve recently been obsessed with the selection of crochet sweater patterns hitting Pinterest and Etsy lately. I’m so impressed with how crochet designers are manipulating simple shapes to make chunky cardigans and oversized sweaters. I’ve gathered a few of my favorites for you to try.

    I have made the Veronica Cardi and the Granite Cardigan. Love them both- especially how quickly the Veronica Cardi works up! The Mint Kimono Jacket is something I haven’t seen before. Nice round-up!

    I love your designs! Is the Veronica Cardi one piece, or is it separate pieces to be joined together? Would it be suitable for a boucle yarn?

      Hi Marie! Thanks so much for your kind words. The Veronica Cardi is made from a few pieces that are then sewn together. I think it would look lovely in a boucle yarn. Maybe consider a traditional yarn for the ribbing sections.
