An awesome short, cropped “grandpa” inspired crochet sweater. Not overly bulky, it pairs nicely with everything from jeans to shorts, skirts and dresses. Like many oversized V-neck button up cardigans, it’s a very versatile piece. It’s certain to be in heavy rotation by whomever is lucky enough to own the final product.

You can make the sweater ranging in a varity of sizes, from an extra small to a 5X. It’s made in panels that are then brought together to complete the sweater.
And what makes this a great pattern for a semi-newbie crocheter, there is a how-to video on youtube showing you how to make it. You can watch that video either on the website (see link below) or you can go to YouTube directly – How To Crochet A Cropped V-Neck Cardigan- The Carl Cardigan!
