The GRANNY SQUARE CARDIGAN is a real must have during the colder days, especially if you love cheerful colors. Within this design you can combine all sorts of colors. The possibilities are endless and the cardigan will also be lovely with any other main color in combination with the cheerful colored granny squares. This project is a combination of knitting and crochet. The front and back pieces are crocheted. The sleeves are knitted with circular needles and worked in the round in stockinette stitch. The ribbing along the bottom is worked on straight knitting needles.


I believe that the cardigan is not very difficult to make, but you do need some knitting and crochet experience. The pattern is written in US terms. The techniques you need for this combined pattern are: 
  • magic circle
  • chain stitch - ch
  • double crochet - dc
  • single crochet – sc
  • half double crochet – hdc
  • slip stitch – sl st
  • chain space – ch-sp
  • joining granny squares
  • weaving in ends
  • picking up stitches with circular knitting needles
  • picking up stitches with straight knitting needles
  • knit (K) and purl (P) rows alternated (stockinette stitch)
  • rib stitch 2/2 (alternate 2 knit stitches and 2 purl stitches in one row)
  • mattress stitch (to seam the cardigan up)
  • binding off

This pattern contains one size and has an oversized fit. The cardigan is very oversized if it’s worn as a size S, and has a regular fit if it’s worn as a size XL. 


  • Crochet hook 5 mm (UK6 / US8)
  • Straight knitting needles 8 mm (UK0 / US11)
  • Circular knitting needles 5.5 mm (UK5 / US9) and 8 mm (UK0 / US11) - 40 or 60 cm (24’’)
  • Tapestry needle to seam the cardigan up.
  • Scissors

For this cardigan I used different kinds of mohair and mohair like yarn. I had some mohair and mohair like yarn leftovers from various brands that I used in this project. Maybe you have leftovers that are perfect for this project as well.

    Further information is described in the pattern. If you have any questions, please send a message. After ordering this digital product, you will receive a digital pattern (PDF-file) with which you can knit a cardigan yourself. You will not receive a finished project!
