The Kirra Cardi ~ hooded cardigan ~ a great project for the ambitious crochet beginner ~ 4 sizes available

The inspiration for this came from my beautiful niece Kirra, she has blonde hair and when she held this yarn next to her, it all just came out! I wanted to create something like 1975 say hello to 2018, and it’s teen approved!

Tester used two yarns and followed the color changes in my pattern. You can be so creative with pattern!

You can find the written pattern here on Etsy and add it to your Ravelry queue.

I hope you enjoy creating this cardigan, and learn something new in the process.  The pattern contains a companion video to help you work the more complicated rows and you can find that link within the pattern.


I’m always here to help if you get stuck!  Please don’t hesitate to message me with any questions.  I want to help you learn new techniques and spread the joy of crochet – it’s called *joy* for a reason – crochet is a way to relax.  I understand it can be frustrating learning new things, but that’s why I’m here – to help you learn and inspire you to create. I would absolutely <3 love <3 to see your finished cardigans, if you have Instagram, Facebook, or a blog, please use hashtag #stardustgoldcrochet  and #kirracardi so I can see them :). Oh yes, and please read all the notes in the pattern, they are there for a reason ;).

Skill Level:

Intermediate – but if you are an ambitious beginner – this pattern is for you!  It is mostly basic stitches, but I threw in a few front post stitches to add some texture.  If you have any trouble with those, don’t worry, I created a full video tutorial to help you work the pattern.  You can find the link inside the pattern.
