These days are ouuuuuuurs… yours and my happy days… sorry (not sorry), I love that show!
The Happy Days cardigan is a fun, practical cropped crochet cardigan, designed with a nod to the nostalgia of the 1950’s hey days.
I always struggled with cardigans which stopped at the hip and make me look boxy, so intentionally designed this shape for those who have a waist they want to show off to the world!

Like all my patterns, this uses US crochet terms
