This cardigan explores the versatility of double crochet two together (DC2TOG). The cardigan starts not with a base chain but with a row of clusters formed with dc2tog. Worked in one piece to the armholes, the cardigan morphs seamlessly to a dc2tog variation that forms a lacy fabric. A lovely cotton/bamboo-blend yarn makes this a good choice for spring days.
