Cove Cardigan Kit: Our 2020 YDT Free Crochet Pattern
We've been waiting for this kind of boho-fun crochet cardie for a long time!!! Cove is a modern take on a classic cardigan, crocheted using unique yarns – Unity & Unity Beyond – that truly elevates the piece. With its blend of wool and plant fibers, Unity yarns make this cardie the perfect piece for transitional seasons or to layer for colder months.
Many thanks to Universal Yarns and designer Rachel Brockman for giving us this pattern to share with you as our 2020 Yarn Discovery Tour free crochet pattern! Don't have a YDT passport. Click here for more info or simply order the yarn and the pattern is availble for purchase on Ravelry.
This cardigan is worked partly modularly, and also seamed. Solid Square motifs make up most of the Fronts and Back. They are seamed together to create strips, with double crochet borders along upper and lower edges of the strips. One strip of Lacy Square motifs runs across the upper portion of Fronts and Back. The sleeves begin with Lacy Square motifs at the top and are then worked down to the cuff in solid double crochet.
The both Unity and Unity Beyond are 262 yards of a 35/wool/28% cotton/18% linen/18% bamboo blend - which means soft! Both Unity and Unity Beyond are DK wieght with a thick & thin structure. Handwash only. Unity yarns are solids and Unity Beyond is more of a multi with an artisanal look.
