About the Long Crochet Cardigan Pattern:

Marly’s crochet instructions were given with the beginner in mind. This long crochet cardigan, or oversized sweater, is sure to be a crochet crowd favorite. Oh, did I mention that the pattern is free and is sized from small to 4xl and 5xl?

This crochet video teaches the Waffle stitch pattern, which is made up of half double crochet and slip stitches worked along a row. The waffle stitch pattern is a one row repeat so it is easy to remember.

As always, this is a free crochet pattern and is available from Red Heart. Not only is this a great pattern but it uses a brand new yarn from Red Heart. We hope you love this crochet tutorial.

About Colorscape (this yarn has been discontinued):

Colorscape is a brand NEW yarn from Red Heart and one that is worth trying out. This is a soft medium weight yarn that you will fall in love with for the way it feels and the colors that you can pick from.

Colorscape is a 100% acrylic worsted weight (#4) yarn. With 187 yards per ball there are many options of what you can make. Recently I published TWO FREE patterns that use only one ball of Colorscape, you can find links below. One ball patterns are a great way to try out a new yarn to see if you like it, without the investment of a sweater or blanket.
