Cascading Waterfall Cardigan


Now, here is the holy grail of crochet sweater patterns—an easy cardigan that looks good on everyone! The Cascading Waterfall Cardigan, with its flowy shape and lightweight lace design, is the one you’ve been looking for.

What makes this cardigan such a winner? So many reasons! Because of its lines, the pattern flatters everyone. Instead of coming in at the waist, the lower part of this sweater drapes over your hips, cascading like a waterfall. The lack of waist shaping makes the pattern easy to work up without having to worry about sizing. The extra-fine merino yarn paired with the lacy shell stitch gives the design an airy look and feel.

The openwork crochet shells and lace edging also give this sweater a feminine feel. The design is simple enough to wear with a floral dress yet has enough texture to add interest to a little black dress. We love how this design looks in magenta, but this cardigan would look wonderful in any color.

You’ll work the Cascading Waterfall Cardigan beginning at the left-front edge, repeating rows until you reach the desired size. Create the left and then right armhole, then the cardigan edging. Make the sleeves and the sleeve edging, and you’re ready to finish, block and wear it everywhere!

Expert crochet designer Nazanin Fard is well-loved by I Like Crochet followers because each and every one of her patterns looks fresh, trendy, and unique. Nazanin first took up needlework at age 4, and has published more than 700 knitting and crochet patterns over the years. Her sweater, vest, and wrap patterns are the prettiest, and we’re thrilled to offer many of Nazanin’s designs in our magazine archive.

Not only is the Cascading Waterfall Cardigan perfect for spring and summer, you can wear it all through autumn.
