Crochet Maya Cardigan Pattern & Tutorial

Updated: Apr 14


Happy Hump Day! Do people still say Hump Day? ha-ha. Wednesday is exciting for people who work Mon-Fri 9-5. This means we're half way through the week. But of course, Friday couldn't come soon enough!


Things have really picked up at work and home so my pattern releases are starting to slow down. Working on garments takes a little longer than my beanies too.


I started the Maya Cardigan (end of) last year (wow that sounds like a long time ago) and I finally finalized this pattern over the weekend.


You can work this pattern with or without pockets but how cute are the pockets? If you love the Granny Square, here's a video tutorial just for that!
