In recent weeks, there have been several crochet cardigan pattern releases. For this article, we have selected two of them; one has a romantic flair, and the other a tailored cut.

Sandra Gutiérrez is the creator of Coco Cardigan. She is a Mexican designer based in England, known as Nomad Stitches. This talented woman has patterns in important magazines, and last year she published a book focused on color work made with different crochet techniques.


Her latest pattern release, Coco, is a cardigan that looks like a tailored blazer. It has a top-down construction and is worked seamlessly, except for the front pockets. It has a V-neckline and a rounded hem finish.

There are photos of two sample pieces on her Ravelry store — one looks more classic, made with solid beige yarn, and the other is striped and fun, ideal for wearing with an informal outfit. Sandra also offers a workshop where she teaches how to customize the jacket to fit like a glove.



Airy Fairy Cardigan by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk

The Airy Fairy Cardigan is the latest design by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk, the designer behind Lilla Björn. Tatsiana masters many techniques, including brioche and mosaic crochet. She regularly publishes in magazines and also has a book with 13 patterns in mosaic crochet inspired by the sea.


The cardigan has that delicate air that beautiful lacework offers to garments. It comes in eight sizes and is constructed seamlessly from the top down. It has a V-neckline and raglan sleeves, designed as ½ length but easily adjustable. It's the perfect combination for a dress if made in a solid color.


These two crochet cardigans are perfect for chilly evenings. Whether you're into a romantic style or a tailored cut, when made in beautiful yarn, it can become your favorite item of clothing this season.
