Introducing the Spring Cardi, this top down crochet cardigan is an easy, beginner friendly pattern with 3 sleeve options. This lightweight crochet cardigan is sure to be a wardrobe staple for the changing seasons.

Red Heart Fashion Soft shines here, lending this cardigan it’s gorgeous drape and sheen. The pattern includes women’s sizes XS-5X, and since this sweater is worked top down it’s easy to try on and adjust your fit to suit you. And of course this means there’s no seaming!

The pattern includes written instructions for short sleeves, 3/4 (three quarter) sleeves, and long sleeves.
