How to crochet a chevron cocoon shrug cardigan

Hello my crocheters, today I will show you the chevron cardigan I’ve made for my beautiful sister. The pattern is very easy and it looks very beautiful, I love the texture of the stitch and the wavy edges. And I love the color!

For this cardigan you will need:

400 g cotton (use your favorite brand);

2 mm hook (or what hook size is indicated on the label);



ch= chain;

sc= single crochet;

dc= double crochet;

Pattern Instructions:

For this pattern you have to make multiple of 12 chain.

Row 1: 3ch, 5dc, *skip 2 ch, 5dc, 2ch, 5dc*, repeat *-* in the last ch make 2 dc ;

Row 2: 3ch, 5dc starting with the 1st dc of the previous row, skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc (the 5th dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), *2ch, 5dc (the 1st dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc starting with the 2nd dc from the hook of the previous row*, repeat *-*, in the last dc of previous row make 2dc;

Repeat from row 2 until you reach the desired length.

Make an edge working 2 rounds of sc.

Now is time to assemble it:

1: Take the square that you just crocheted and put it on a flat surface.

2. Fold the square into half.

3. Sew the edges together, but leave a space for arms.

4. Crochet the sleeves in double crochet around the arm openings and crochet this way until you will reach the length you need (I’ve made 40 rounds).

Because I don’t like how the seemed edges looks like I’ve crocheted a slip stitch all the way down the sleeve on both sides.

I hope you will enjoy making this cardigan and I can’t wait to see what color you will choose. You can wear this cardigan on a walk, to the office, at school, on a date, on a movie night.
