Bobble stitch crochet makes it an everyday essential, oversized cosy cardi
The main stitch in this chunky crochet cardigan is the bobble stitch. Find out how to do it on the blog here.
Using the bobble stitch enables this cardigan to provide just the right amount of cosy whilst open enough to drape. Wear it as an oversized addition to your wardrobe all year round!
The wide sleeves and body give it a 70s spring time feel (albeit without any brown or mustard). Instead we have a selection of juicy rainbow shades. Wear it as a jacket or around the house as a cardi. The choice is yours.
