Because of all the many crochet patterns that can be used, there is practically no limit to the designs that crochet cardigans can come in both for men and women. They add a perfect highlight and special touch to any outfit.

What Are Crochet Cardigans?

Almost everyone has heard Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, “The Charge of the Light Brigade”. Did you know that the real events in this poem inspired and actually influenced the crochet cardigans that we have today? The British soldiers during the Crimean War had knitted waist coats as part of their uniform; these served to keep them warm and dry during inclement weather. The British Army Major General who led the Charge of the Light Brigade was James Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan. After the events of the war, people remembered him by calling woolen knitted waist coats like the ones worn by the British soldiers, “cardigans”. Over the next century, the garment known as a cardigan branched out in both design and who wore it. Nowadays, both men and women wear them, and not just as waist coats. Crochet cardigans are attractive, elegant pieces of clothing that can be seen almost everywhere.
