Today we have a new easy everyday crochet cardigan pattern to share with you all! Maylee is such a cozy, beginner friendly sweater and it whips up very quickly.
I love the longer style and casual, no buttons opening. It’s great for layering and creating a relaxed look. This is my go-to style for winter, so I decided to design one that I would love to wear every day!
The Maylee pattern calls for bulky yarn, so this sweater is a fairly quick project. Faster than crocheting a blanket, which I no longer seem to have the patience for…sad!
The drop shoulder design features five panels that are sewn together as you go. Two sets of panels are exactly the same, making things even easier. Included in the pattern are women’s sizes XS, S, M/L, XL, and 2X, perfect for making one for yourself and one for a friend.
Shown here is Knit Picks Simply Wool in the color Wilbur. I loved working with this yarn. It was easy to work with and I’m finding it to wear very well, too. I’ve never had a wool sweater before and I like it!
The only supplies you’ll need is a 7mm crochet hook (or size to get gauge) and a tapestry needle. I really like using these sewing clips to hold the pieces when I sewed the panels together. But those are optional, of course. I also like to use stitch markers to keep track of counting rows. Or tally marks scrawled on the pattern page work, too!
If you decide to give it a try, let me know how it goes!
And my growing favorite place to find yarn and patterns, Love Crochet.
