Big Bow Cardigan Free Crochet Pattern

Cream and Brown Photographic Beauty Site Launch Website

Designer Julia Vaconsin wanted to create a fashionable garment that’s easy enough for a beginner crocheter to make. The built-in scarf extends from the collar of the jacket and can be flung around your neck like a traditional scarf or tied in a bow. The jacket itself is worked from side to side, starting with the right sleeve. The sleeves are worked simply, without shaping. An asymmetrical closure adds interest to this warm, flattering cardigan that’s made for enjoying the winter outdoors.
