When it comes to crocheting clothing, I’m always looking for the ‘easy way out.’ The traditional idea of making a front (or two), the sleeves, a back, and piecing them all together - it’s just too finicky for me! So, when I hit upon the idea of making a short-sleeved cardigan out of two long rectangles, I was all over it. It’s worked in a mesh, so it’s fast, too!
Light and breezy for summer, this little cardi is perfect for throwing on over a tee or a sundress for just a little more coverage.
