Crochet cardigan patterns are very popular garments to make and to wear. Many cardigan designs make use of very simple shapes in their construction, which is perfect for anyone who is newer to making garments.
You can find cardigan crochet patterns in various yarn weights, sizes and styles online.
This collection of free crochet cardigan patterns includes Adult Sizes ranging from Women’s Small to 5XL.
