Ahhh, Painted Canyon. The colorway in Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn! that has taken the fiber loving community by storm. For months I’ve been racking my brain to come up with the perfect pattern for this gorgeous yarn, and this Painted Canyon Hooded Cardigan is it, folks!
Painted Canyon Hooded Cardigan
This Hooded Cardigan crochet pattern is probably the favorite of all of my crochet patterns. Or… my favorite, anyway. It is warm. Has a hood. It has a flowy collar. IT. HAS. POCKETS. And don’t forget the gorgeous Painted Canyon colors. Did I mention it has pockets?!
Originally making this cardigan for myself only, I decided to go ahead and write up the pattern so that others that also love the Painted Canyon colorway could crochet and love it as well. Then I thought “why stop with just one size”? So I added six more sizes so that the pattern now includes adult: 0/2, 2/4, 6/8, 10/12, 14/16, 16/18, 18/20, 22/24, and 26/28.
For this pattern I used two testers for each size. Testing is important and when it comes to sizes and body types the more the merrier, I say! Speaking of sizes, make sure you measure your gauge before starting!
There are two ways to do the pockets: outside and inside. Outside is certainly easier as you can place them wherever you wish without having to alter the pattern. I have also included instructions for making the sleeves cuff to shoulder and shoulder to cuff. This way if you’re controlling the colors it will be easier! Yay!
The child sizes of the Painted Canyon free:
Get the preemie and newborn sleep sacks here.
Get the infant size 6 month infant here.
Get the infant size 12 month here.
Get the child size 2/3T here.
Get the child size 4/5T here.
Get the child size 6/8 here.
Get the child size 10/12 here.
For the adult size 6/8, as pictured, I used three skeins of the Painted Canyon, two skeins of the Graphite, and two skeins of the Light Gray – all I Love This Yarn! Can you believe that the only stitch used is the half double crochet?! Crazy right?
If you would like to make a solid color not only will you have a lot less ends to weave in but you will also use a lot less yarn! The spike stitches account for quite a bit more yardage, but then again I don’t think the color changes would be the same without them!
Head on over to Ravelry or Etsy to get your pattern. Thank you for loving this pattern, and for your ongoing support! I’m thrilled to be able to continue creating awesome and easy-to-read crochet patterns at a reasonable price.
