A glamorous crochet cardigan with bell sleeves and detachable faux fur collar! This statement piece works up fast. A full video tutorial is included to help you get stitches right, the bell sleeve taper and flare as well as many ways to attach the detachable fur collar for easy garment washing. No guesswork. I’ve got you covered.
One of many appealing features is this cardigan will not lose it’s shape or sag. A rarity in the world of crochet cardigans. Designed to fit the body with options for a bit more ease is included.
The ribbing is a vertical stitch as covered in this post series on ribbed stitches. It holds its shape and doesn’t stretch so you can be sure of a sleek lasting fit.
The ribbing is thoughtfully placed by size so proportion is flattering to your height and build.

I designed knit and crochet project trackers! This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of room for notes in each pattern.
