The Juniper Berry Cardigan is an oversized garment inspired by Juniper trees, and their dusty blue berries. This cardigan is extra cozy from the texture of the Alpine Stitch, and gives the fabric a lovely warmth. This cardigan works up quickly due to the Treble and Double Crochets in the body, and is suitable for an advanced beginner. As a final touch, the edging features the Bead Stitch to put those juniper berries into the piece. This cardigan is crocheted in 2 panels for the body, and a panel for each sleeve. These parts are seamed together before the edging and cuffs are crocheted on.

This is really delightful to make. I did make the bunny pink and the background white as I had no purple #6 weight yarn. IT is a lot of fun and not hard and looks really nice. I used a twig from my yard. Now I will make another for my daughter and make the bunny white and the background pink. I hope you make more of these mini wall hanging for summertime. I really enjoyed this very much. I added a little more length to the end just for fun. Please please design more for us to crochet like a flower and a sailboat.

I suggest decreasing toward the top. Mine was poofy, like a crown. I made adjustments and added a tassel. But for people who must follow a pattern and can’t improvise, a lighter weight yarn might be necessary. Definitely, do not make this with Super Bulky. The pattern was beautiful. ❤️

Such a cute pattern. I appreciate all the notes and tips before you start. I will just say that the instructions for the Double Post Half Double Crochet are very confusing, even for an experienced crocheter like myself. The pictures would help more if there was one or two added to show each step. The wording in that instruction was different than most patterns out there which make it hard to follow correctly. I did catch a couple small typos as well. For example, in Row 11, it should be 3 DC not 2. I had to redo it and count stitches on the sample photo to make sure I got it right. All in all, I am figuring it out and love the pattern. I would just suggest another proofread and edit. :) thank you!

Pattern is easy to read and I can’t wait to make it! Recently had cervical spine surgery and don’t have enough hand control for my hooks yet! Soon I hope❤️
