Lutin Marguerite, crochet pattern by Sylvie Damey

“Lutin Marguerite” is another design with a super long hood, this time made with worsted weight to fit little ones with sizes going from 6 months to 2 year old.

As you may know, I’m french. Every now and again I like to use french words to describe my patterns: “lutin” is the french word for “Elf”…

Lutin Marguerite, crochet pattern by Sylvie Damey, Marguerite floral motif by Sylvie Damey,

It features a cute “marguerite” (= daisies in french) floral motif along the edge of the hood and the bottom edge.

Crab stitch edges compliment the unique look, while twisted cords make a safe closure system for babies.

Originally made with recycled cotton and hemp worsted weight yarn (available as a KIT for this design), you could also use colored yarns, just as my amazing testers did.

Pattern is now available through Etsy, Ravelry, Craftsy.

Oh. And one last thing. Like the Lutin Marguerite but you’d like to make it in MORE KIDS SIZES ? No problem. Use bulky yarn and a 6.0 mm (J) hook, to achieve gauge of 13 stitches and 6 rows = 4 inches in dc in the front loop (US crochet terms)

If you’d like to make a Lutin Marguerite in larger KIDS SIZES:
the same 4 sizes given in instructions should give you sizes 4 YEAR OLD to 10 YEAR OLD.

I use the same base for all my kids patterns, thus change the gauge and you’ll get more kids sizes as for the Roselette top or Roseline cardigan.

However, for a hooded cardigan such as this one, you may have to adjust the size of the Hood, as I sized it down to get the proper sizing for babies. :-)


  1. Theresa:

    Love the lutin hooded cardigan but will need to make it larger for an older child. I am new to crochet and I understand about using bigger yarn and hook to make a larger size, but I don’t understand what it means to “adjust the size of the hood”. Thanks for any help you can give me.

  2. Theresa:

    I want to make the lutin cardigan in a larger size but I’m not sure what you mean by adjusting the size of the hood.

  3. Administrator:

    Hi Theresa, yes sorry maybe it wasn’t very clear. But basically, you may need to make the larger size hood (= size 18 months / 2 yo) even for the 2 smaller sizes. But that would need to be double checked on your child.. If you’re not afraid of MAYBE having to rip a couple rows to add a few increases, I’d suggest you try it as written with the larger gauge, fold the hood as if to join in in sc as explained, and try it on your child. Then you should be able to see if it’s going to fit, or if it’s too small. If is were too small, then make the larger size hood… or if that’s not enough, continue to increase as established for maybe a couple extra rows, then continue as instructed. Maybe someday I’ll give it a try and make a sample in my daughter’s size to see how it fits.. but I’m not too sure when I’ll have time for this. Please let us know how it goes for you !
