If you’re comfortable wielding a hook but have never attempted a crocheted garment, look no further than the Super Slouch Crocheted Cardigan. Marly Bird, proud Red Heart spokesperson and expert knitter and crocheter, coaches you through this oversized cardigan that’s simple to make and cozy to wear. The cardigan is worked in one piece beginning with a double crochet and a simple shell stitch for a pop of texture on the back. Stitches are then cast on for the sleeves, and the front is worked as two separate panels before attaching a shawl collar that repeats the shell motif. Class includes a downloadable pattern PDF in sizes XS (36" bust) to 3XL (63" bust).
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 7 (8, 10, 11) balls Red Heart Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™, Suede
  • I/9 hook or size needed to obtain gauge
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Split stitch markers
  • Gauge: 4 shells in stitch pattern = 9”; rows 2-9 of pattern = 4” ; 14 dc= 4”; 8 rows= 3.75”

  • Work a foundation double crochet
  • Work a beginning double crochet
  • Work a double crochet two together
