Cosy and chunky, there’s nothing like a classic bomber jacket! The oversized fit and open stitches work together to create a modern crochet cardigan.

Using super bulky yarn, this bomber jacket works up quickly and features signature balloon sleeves with a chunky ribbed hem. The front and back panels are crocheted lengthways with an open mesh like stitch for great drape and airiness. This also makes it possible to add vertical hidden pockets along the side of the body so the cardigan really looks like a bomber jacket!

You can also make a version of this cardigan without pockets (alteration instructions provided in the pattern) which is great for beginners or first-time garment makers.

This ad-free printable pattern includes a written pattern, full measurements, photo tutorial and link to the step-by-step video tutorial. Whether you’re a visual learner or love written patterns, we’ve got you covered!

Loved this pattern so much!! Easy to adapt size wise, not too complex, and such a cosy cardigan, I wear it all the time!!

Just received the pattern. It looks awesome. The only problem that I could see with it is the hook size which is 12 mm and not readily available at a reasonable price. I may have to use a 13 mm instead. I don’t know yet how much that will affect the pattern. Will have to wait until the yarn arrives to try it.

Am halfway through and am super stoked on this pattern!!! I hope to make like 5 more of these for my loved ones for Xmas! Easy to follow for beginner crocheters and a very unique style. Perfect for Gen-X-ers like myself who grew up on bomber jackets. I plan to order more patterns from this seller!
