Crochet Tutorial: Granny Square Cardigan

I have been struggling to make cardigans or a sweater for some time. I have tried different patterns but had difficulty following some of them and creating something that would be worth wearing. I gave up, until I found this!

This week I was experimenting with different patterns and I came across this Granny Square Cocoon pattern from Maria Valles. I knew instantly that I had to make it! It was the perfect design and easy to follow. I’ve made a few of my own modifications, and I used an entirely different color scheme, but that’s the joy of crochet! I added an accent color on the edging to give it a fashion flair.

Here are a few photos of me wearing my finished piece. I added a gemstone brooch as a front enclosure to tie the piece together. I LOVE IT!

To make this smaller or bigger, Measure from the bottom of the neck to the bottom of the buttocks and your Granny Square should be that wide. Then follow along with the rest of the pattern for the outer edge and sleeves.

  3. I would really love to make this however I am only recently been crocheting. I would love to make this piece but I am not sure how I would go about making it bigger (approx. a 2x) Is there any chance you could fill me in on how big to make it?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    • I found this guide on Crochet Crowd…hope this helps
      For the Different Sizes
       XS, S, M = 36″ Square
       X, XL, 2 XL = 38″ Square
       3XL, 4XL, 5 XL = 40″ Square

      • Thank you so much! Sometimes I struggle, esp when making something for someone else in my family. This really did help.
