At The Crochet Project, if you can’t wear it generally they don’t make it. And their favourite thing to wear is a cardigan. Whether it is a cosy cardigan to snuggle into or a light one to slip over your shoulders to keep the chills off, cardigans are the ultimate all season wear. Cardigans do variable weather and heating systems better than anything else.
The projects have included an extensive size range to make this a go-to book for everything from baby gifts to enhancing your own wardrobe – there is a size to suit every woman and girl in your life. The advantage of this is that if you are nervous about the time and financial commitment of making for yourself, you can build up your confidence by making the designs in a smaller size first.
Top down seamless design is our favourite way of working. You can try on as you go to ensure great fit. There are no seams to sew and very little finishing to do – minimum time from fastening off to wearing it. Crochet has plenty of natural structure in the stitches that seamless garments hang very well.
This is a collection of cardigans we know you are going to love to make and love to wear. Each has a quiet simplicity to it and enough detail to keep it interesting.
Patterns are written using UK crochet terminology with US conversions given in the abbreviations section. Schematics with detailed measurements are provided throughout.
