Beverly Cardigan Crochet Pattern

Maker
3/17/2019

Hey Fellow Hook Nookers! Brianna here again, the Mama Maker and Designer behind Life and Yarn! You can come follow me on Instagram @life.and.yarn for what I am working on daily! I am so excited to be bringing you another brand-new project to THN Blog!!! Crochet has been something that I have picked up and put down countless times my entire life, but now it is really becoming my life!!! I believe my crochet calling is to bring you modern and chic crochet designs! You can come check out more of my work later on my blog. I am truly a creative at heart and nothing makes me happier than to see all of you enjoy making pieces that I feel are a part of me! It makes my heart so full when this amazing community gets excited about a project that I have poured my heart into! This journey has been so amazing, and I am so happy to have you all be part of it and for me to be part of yours!

Previously on THNB I brought to you the Reverie Ruana. I didn’t think I could make something that I loved that much, maybe even more… Have you ever designed something or come across a design that you can see yourself wearing for just about any occasion? That’s how I feel about my newest design, the Beverly Cardigan!!! I want to wear this cardigan daily around the house, to run errands, to a casual lunch, holidays, all of it! I love the simplicity of this design but also its uniqueness! I really think this may be my favorite project to date! I cannot wait to see all of you lovely makers get making!
