Are cardigans good beginner projects?

Yes and No!

Any project can be easy and complex depending on the pattern. If you are a beginner and are trying to make a crochet mens cardigan or crochet mens sweater, then you want to look at the easy construction as well as stitches.

Here are a few tips for the beginners trying to crochet mens cardigan for their first time:

  • Go for a pattern that uses basic crochet stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet stitches. Be sure to read through the pattern, and see if there is a recommended skill level listed near the top. Get an idea of what stitches you will use, what type of seaming will be involved, and whether you need to know any special techniques.
  • Then you want to look for patterns made of basic rectangles or other large simple shapes. You may want to avoid designs that utilize complex shaping techniques and fancy colorwork at least for your first project. Likewise, avoid patterns that call for very lightweight or otherwise difficult yarns. 
  • consider a loose or oversized sweater design as an excellent starting project. These silhouettes tend to be more forgiving than fitted sweaters. This way, even if your gauge is a little off, there’s still a good chance that your sweater will fit.
