About
This is a beginner-friendly pattern for a very basic mesh cardigan, created from a big rectangle (the back panel), which then splits into two narrow rectangles (the two front panels). The two narrow rectangles have a space in between for your head, and this ultimately creates a U-shape. Next, the front panels get folded over top of the back panels and the sides get seamed up, leaving space for your arms.

Yarn

I used WeCrochet Comfy Fingering Weight yarn for this design! I originally purchased this yarn about a year ago and made 2 plant-related patterns with them: My easy hanging planter (faux macrame) and my Ripple Plant Rug! They’re both free if you’re interested!
* Each 1.8-oz 50-g skein is only $3.99 (Budget-friendly)!

You’ll need only 2 (2, 3, 3, 3) (4, 4, 4, 5) skeins or 395 (430, 500, 580, 640) (715, 775, 875, 935) yds
{362 (394, 458, 531, 586) (654, 719, 801, 855) m} of a similar fingering weight cotton yarn.

Hook: Size U.S. E/4 (3.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Notions: Tapestry needle, several locking stitch markers to help with seaming

Sizing
This sweater is written in nine sizes as follows: XS (S, M, L, XL) (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X).

Finished bust: 35 (39, 43, 47, 51) (55, 59, 63, 67)” / {89 (99, 109, 119, 130) (140, 150, 160, 170) cm}

Total Length: 16 (17, 17, 18, 18) (19, 19, 20, 20)” / {41 (43, 43, 46, 46) (48, 48, 51, 51) cm}

This #SizeInclusive cardigan is designed to be worn with approximately 5 to 7 inches (13–18 cm) of positive ease. When choosing a size, find the bust measurement here that equals approximately 5 to 7 inches (13–18 cm) larger than your actual bust measurement and make that size. For reference, the model has a 34-inch (86-cm) bust and is wearing a size small with a finished garment bust measurement of 39 inches (99 cm), worn with 5 inches (13 cm) of positive ease.

I have a crochet pattern book coming out in November called Modern Crochet Sweaters that you can pre-order here!
