Chunky Cardigan from Simple Chic Crochet


Please do not press 'Add to Cart' .  This pattern is only available in Simple Chic Crochet, please follow the links for the yarn and the book, you can buy both of these from Mrs Moon!

This cardigan is lightweight, gorgeously warm and very quick to make. It is made in the round, top down, so once you have finished there is no sewing up.  This really is a very easy 'first' all in one garment.

You will need Plump in the following quantites (colour shown Cherry Pie):

7(8,9) skeins Plump        Sizes : S(M,L)        Chest: 96 (104, 112) cm

I made this jacket on a 12mm hook but have also made it using a 10mm, this gives it a more structured fit.

This pattern and 34 others are only availble in our new book Simple Chic Crochet, which you can pre-order here.  Publication is on 28th February.

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
