Cool fall days mean all things cozy and warm! I designed the Ophelia Cardigan not only for style but warmth.
The long cardigan makes it easy to wrap around yourself giving you all the coziness needed during the fall. I love to design garments that I enjoy wearing, and this cardigan I know will be a go-to this fall.
Perfect for cooler fall days, the Ophelia Cardigan will keep you warm and cozy with its knee-length and puff sleeves. Worked in panels from the bottom up, the easy colorwork speckling in the color block section gives it an extra touch of gentle feminity.

While fall is synonymous with changing leaves and pumpkins, fall can also happen in the desert! The temperatures do fall at night and there are breezes that blow every now and then. And even though the sun shines, there may still be a chill to the air that just makes you want to wrap yourself up in coziness. The theme for this fall’s issue is DESERT BOHO.
In this issue, you will find gorgeous designs made using colors that represent the desert and have a boho flair. Each piece is unique and perfect for anyone with none being too bulky or overheating, making them perfect for the fall season, no matter where you live.
If you’re new to the Crochet Foundry Magazine, it’s a brilliant digital crochet magazine focussing on gorgeous size-inclusive designs.

The entire magazine is designed with beautiful WeCrochet yarn. For the Ophelia cardigan, I choose to work with their “Wool of the Andes Bulky” yarn.
This yarn is 100% Superwash wool, so it is perfect for a fall cardigan. Wool has an amazing capacity to regulate your body temperature. It will keep you warm without being too heavy! It’s soft, easy to care for and a delight to crochet with, what more can we ask?
Wool of the Andes Bulky comes in 26 gorgeous shades, which made it a perfect choice for this color block cardigan. So many gorgeous color combinations are possible!
What you’ll Need for the Ophelia Crochet Cardigan Duster
- Wool of the Andes Bulky (100 g, 100% Superwash wool, 137 yd / 125 m). You will need:

- Persimmon heather: 2 (3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4)
- Tapestry needle to weave in the ends. I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.
