The Maple Grove Cardigan is from my book Modern Crochet Sweaters: 20 Chic Designs for Everyday Wear. This book includes 20 #SizeInclusive sweater patterns using a variety of techniques and construction methods to ensure there is something of value for every skill level. Each pattern is written for sizes XS to 5XL and each size has been thoroughly tested! We had over 500+ crochet pattern testers for this book to make sure that each size fits its intended wearer in a way that makes them feel beautiful. You can buy this book with confidence, knowing that each pattern was written for you and your unique body measurements.

Inspired by the cold, winter days that beg you to curl up by the fire, my goal was to create a stylish garment that embodies the warmth and coziness of your favorite blanket or comfy robe. I consider this to be a wardrobe staple for the homebodies; somewhat of an informal, everyday piece.

Utilizing a mix of single crochet stitches and chain spaces, the granite stitch creates an unstructured, airy fabric that flows beautifully as it follows your movement. Landing just below the knee, this duster cardigan lends a sleek, lengthening effect to any outfit. The slim-fitting sleeves combined with a neat-looking collar and hem help balance the relaxed, boxy fit. These finishing details add sophistication while maintaining the dramatic, oversized vibe that we love so much.

Sizing: This sweater is written in five sizes as follows: XS (S/M, L/XL, 2X/3X, 4X/5X). Make sure to follow the numbers for your size only.

Note that different colorways of Vanna’s Choice have varying yardage. Make sure to check the yardage listed on the label of your desired colorway to ensure you have enough yarn within the same dye lot before beginning.

Substitute Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice with any medium-weight, category #4 yarn that matches gauge. Just note that certain fibers (such as cotton) are heavier than the one shown and will stretch more than an acrylic fiber over time. You can compensate for this stretching by working your cardigan slightly shorter than your desired length.

Main gauge hook - Size U.S. K/10½ (6.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Hook for border - Size U.S. G/7 (4.5 mm) hook or 2 sizes smaller than main gauge hook
