River Rock Cardigan Pattern

This super warm cardigan pattern is size inclusive

The River Rock Cardigan is as warm as a jacket for the coldest of winter days. Pair it with your favorite blue jeans or even a dress to keep you feeling cozy.

Just a bit of texture, combined with worsted weight yarn and you may have a new favorite sweater to keep you warm. The crochet pattern uses basic stitches but you will need to pay attention to stitch changes, which makes this great for an advanced beginner.

  • I can never get the download to work. When I go to the website where is the option to enter the code? Do I have to click the purchase icon first and is it available to Canadians because the prices are always in American dollars. Thank you,
