Crochet Hexi Cardigans are strongly trending in style for 2023 and 2024. Sized XL to 5 XL. It's the strategic folding of a hexagon.
The hexagon isn't a flat version of a hexagon. You will notice it will ruffle and see this happening in the extensive beginner instructions. The ruffling is intentional to create the spaces you will need to form this sweater.
This is part of the new BERNAT MAKE THIS program.
The sweater consists of two identical hexagons that are joined at the back. Sleeves are added to it and a few rows at the bottom of the cardigan.
Mikey used Caron One Pound with the following colours. A = Rose, B = Pumpkin, C = Off White and D = Cape Cod Blue.

I crocheted a sweater earlier in 2023. It's the Men's Sweater Weather Pullover. It was easy to crochet and put together. My version of double-stranding made for a very heavy sweater.
I was wearing my First Knit Hat that has a tutorial and free pattern in the picture that I am wearing at the pond with the dogs.
Party People Crochet Sweater is another great option. This has a free pattern and also tutorial.
