Crochet Blanket Cardigan

Caron Chunky Cakes is the hottest new yarn in the Cake family to hit Michaels.  This super cute easy to make Blanket Cardigan has just been released and has jumped right near the top of my personal to-do list!  It looks incredibly warm and cozy.  Perfect for a chilly winter day.

This simple pattern uses the concept of a rectangle made from half double crochet into the horizontal bar.  It really creates the next texture.  Here is a simple diagram to demonstrate:

After it’s done, it’s a simple fold to create the armholes and you are ready to go.  It’s a great beginner project to get started with crocheted clothing.

Mikey is undecided at this time on whether or not to film a tutorial.  Leave him a yay or a nay in the comments below if you’d like him to film this one.

  1. I’m completely confused on how to fold it to make the sleeves and wear it. ? I’m an avid pattern reader too. I just don’t get it. Please help!?

  2. Don’t think I would need a tutorial but I am not sure how to form the ‘sleeves’. Is there a diagram to show how to lay out the rectangle and fold it and where to sew?

  3. Jeanne – is it foundation corner to foundation corner to create the sleeve or foundation corner to last row corner?

  4. I’m not sure on a whole tutorial but I would like a short snippet of a visual of where the hook goes in. I have a general idea but it would be appreciated! As I understand, Mikey is super sick so focus on that!

  5. it’s pretty simple but maybe you could do a quickie tutorial demonstrating the stitch; where to put your hook into the hdc.

  6. I am excited to try this pattern. I have only made one other cardigan in all my years of crocheting, and it was not very good. So Yes! I would love to see a Mikey Tutorial!

  7. I love this cardigan, it seems to be simple enough but I have a question how did you do the border, is the only thing. Thanks Mikey and Diva Dan for all you do for us. LOVE YA GUYS!!!!!!

  8. Nay! The diagram and additional previous basic tutorial information is good enough. The hardest part of this pattern is in the folding.
