Cloverwood is a classic cardigan design featuring afterthought pockets, a ribbed, fold-over collar and relaxed sleeves that cinch tight at the sleeve cuffs. Crocheted in the beginner-friendly linen stitch, this cardigan works up quickly while only needing to reference the pattern a couple of times - perfect for distracted crocheting!
Most of the ribbing details are worked in a smaller hook to improve the silhouette and help create a more dramatic wide sleeve that quickly pulls in at the wrist. You can work your cardigan to any length and adjust most of the details within the pattern to suit your personal taste. The lightweight yarn is key in helping create a cardigan that won’t stretch out too much over time and helps to keep its original shape.
