Introducing the Spring Cardi! This lightweight cardigan includes 3 sleeve options and is sure to be a wardrobe staple. Red Heart Fashion Soft shines here, lending this sweater it’s gorgeous drape and sheen. The beginner friendly pattern includes sizes XS-5X and is worked top down, which means you can try it on as you go; and there’s no seaming!

What I love about this cardigan is the eyelet design encasing it. That something as simple as a skipped stitch creates such beautiful lines amazes me about crochet. Otherwise this little cardigan is crocheted with almost all double crochets. It works up fast and easy. This is a fabulous beginner crochet cardigan, even if you haven’t made any garments before.

I’ve included pictures and a couple of videos for dividing the body and sleeves. These really are simple steps, but sometimes it’s just easier to watch it being done.
