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.

Orange creamsicle is one of my favorite so I had to click this pattern, just because. I love that the designer included a video tutorial to make this hooded cardigan and I love that the granny square is being used to make it. Appreciate the heads up about the yarn selection. I can not wait to get started.

I haven't make this yet but I will! I love this Orange Creamsicle Hooded Cardigan. The pattern has been around for a few years so all the bugs should be fixed. I love the hood and the length of this cardigan that is great for me. There is a video that I will be referring to when it comes time to put it together. So nice to have it to follow. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I think what I like most about this project are the flared arms and the hood. I walk my dogs twice a day and sometimes I need something on those cool mornings or evening and this would be perfect. Have to be in style even when walking those little fur babies. Directions are clear and I think I'll try this one.

I like Yarnutopia's unique take on clothing and accessories. These are pieces that you won't easily find anywhere else. She gives some really great tips on yarn choice for her orange creamsicle sweater, stating that it will get heavy really quickly if you do not chose a very lightweight yarn. I learned the hard way when making a long cape with a hood. I finished it and can never wear it due to the fact that it is so heavy it weighs it down and doesn't look nice when I wear it! Ugh. This is a real vintage looking sweater, especially with the contrasting color trim.
