Boho Blocks Cardigan
Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “If you’re a fan of motifs, this sophisticated cardigan is the project for you. Worked entirely in granny squares that are slip-stitched together, the jacket has a boxy look that makes it ideal for casual weekend wear. For a contemporary edge, the designer worked it in jewel tones and, by holding two strands of a variegated yarn together, she achieved a rich marled effect. And for the moms out there, she also designed a matching child’s pullover; the pattern for the Child’s Boho Blocks Pullover can be found online at www.interweavecrochet.com.”
