If your crochet projects up to this point have all been scarves, afghans, and washcloths, this is the perfect project to introduce you to the world of garment making.
Made from six rectangles with easy shaping in the sleeves, this cardi is simple to make and construct but is big on visual impact, with a stunning ribbed shawl collar and luxuriously textured main body. Both new and experienced stitchers will come back to this pattern over and over again for everything from special occasions to a grab-and-go wardrobe essential.
