The Rosebud Cardigan is a timeless layering piece that will never go out of fashion and is sure to complement any outfit. Designed for everyday wear, this cardigan features matching front pockets, an optional waist tie and short rows along the collar. For a breezy, casual look, wear it open and show off your outfit underneath. Fasten the waist tie for a cozy, fitted cardigan that will remain secure and hug your body, keeping you warm. The contrasting stitch pattern in the top few rows of the pockets provides a dynamic mix of textures without being distracting, unified by the monochromatic nature of this sweater. Pair with jeans and your favorite boots for a laid-back look.
Note: This cardigan is a variation of my all-time best-selling pattern, the Rosebud Raglan—a simple raglan pullover that matches this cardigan. The original Rosebud Raglan crochet pattern can be found on most pattern-selling platforms. For more information, visit knitsnknots.ca/rosebud-raglan

Substitute Lion Brand Jeans with any worsted weight, category #4 yarn that matches gauge. Any fiber should work out fine. Jeans is one of my favorite budget-friendly yarns because it has a softness that can be hard to find in acrylics within this price range.
