Orange Creamsicle Hooded Cardigan
The Orange Creamsicle Hooded Cardigan has a vibrant personality to breathe fresh life into any cold winter day. With an easy granny square assembly, this crochet cardigan pattern feels like the best combination of blanket and sweater pattern. The addition of the hood makes this piece perfect for the coldest of icy breezes, and the pocket, trim, and button options give you endless room for variation on a classic design. You will make two hexagons to join for your base and then shape the rest of the cardigan with additions and sewing, but don't worry—if this is new to you, there is a handy video to guide you through the process.
