6 Crochet Cardigan Patterns Perfect for Layering

Fall and winter are all about layering, and I can’t think of a better way to do that than with crochet cardigan patterns.

I’m so dependent on cardigans that I keep one on hand at all times. There’s one in my car, one in my craft room, and one hanging by the door that I can throw into my bag as I leave the house.

Crochet cardigans are versatile, too. Throw a cardigan over your favorite t-shirt and jeans, or layer it on top of your dress when it’s super chilly.

Prep yourself for layering with these crochet cardigan patterns — and steal some of their styling ideas while you’re at it!

This cardigan clearly took some inspiration from the granny square! Work the body in one piece from the bottom up, then just add the sleeves and you’re finished! This cardigan is definitely an example of how the granny square can actually be cool.

I’m seriously digging the shoulder tucks and edging of this cozy cardi. It makes me want to cuddle up to a blanket and a cup of tea on the couch. The decorative edge of the cardigan is crocheted with a variegated yarn so that you can get lots of color without changing skeins.

My favorite thing about this cardigan: no seams! You’ll want to choose a soft, lofty mohair-blend yarn for this one. Doesn’t that sound perfect for fall and winter layering? Pair it with jeans or over your favorite dress. Either way, you’re sure to stay warm and cozy.

Starry Night Cardigan

This cardigan is worked using squares and rectangles, so while the shaping is simple, there’s a lot of seaming to do! Just because it’s short-sleeved doesn’t mean it’s off limits in cold weather. This cardigan is great for layering. Throw it on over your favorite long-sleeved shirts and dresses for just a bit of extra warmth.
