FUNFETTI BOMBER CARDIGAN
Cosy and chunky, there's nothing like a classic bomber jacket! The oversized fit and open stitches work together to create a modern crochet cardigan. Using super bulky yarn, this bomber jacket works up quickly and features signature balloon sleeves with a chunky ribbed hem. This pattern is classed as an easy/intermediate because the pockets make it a bit trickier to crochet but there is also a handy video tutorial to help you! You can also make a version of this cardigan without pockets (alteration instructions provided in the pattern) which is great for beginners or first-time garment makers.
This crochet cardigan is made up of multiple granny squares that are seamed together-unique and custom multi-colored . The finished cardigan is a cropped, relaxed fit with about 8 inches of positive ease with long bell sleeves.
"I've spent countless hours admiring those stylish chunky knitted cardigans that it has inspired me to come up with a crochet version. The Los Angeles Crochet Cardigan is a bomber style crochet jacket that is a perfect wardrobe staple. I used Drops Snow yarn in Olive green and 10 mm crochet hook so this cardigan works up super fast. It uses purl single crochet stitch and includes a video tutorial to help you with the stitch. It has cropped length, oversized fit and balloon sleeves. Designed in XS-5XL sizes."
