Light Crochet Cardigan

By: Melissa Mall from crochetvolution.com
Light Crochet Cardigan

Summer is the season of sundresses, tank tops, and t-shirts. However, there are some days that are a touch too breezy or a few degrees below average. On these days, this Light Crochet Cardigan is what you will reach for time and time again. Stitched using a mesh pattern and in a soft and pretty white yarn, this crocheted cardigan is a project you will work up more than once as your friends will see it and want one too.

This is a very pretty item. It's so right for where I live in Florida. Not too heavy. And it's a very easy pattern to follow. The directions are well written which means everything. I want to make up some now to put aside for the holiday gift exchange. Thanks for sharing.

I like this short sleeve cardigan also. Sometimes you just need a little more cover and this one will fit the bill. I really like the collar of this one also. I guess I will have to run back to the store and purchase more yarn. I want to make this one.

I see nothing wrong with a cotton mesh short sleeve cardi in the summertime. It comes in handy in freezing cold air conditioned restaurants and movie theaters. It should be a pretty easy piece to complete, using only single and double crochets! If there is a way to make it longer, it would make a great shorty beach coverup.

I really love cardigans, especially short sleeve ones. i can never find enough short sleeve cardis to throw over tanks for spring and summer. I am glad I found this. It is being bumped up on my to do list. Thank you for posting it.I hope mine turns out as lovely as the sample.

I really like how this light crochet cardigan pattern appears to have a "heart" shape neckline in the photo. Was reluctant to read the directions with skill level presented as intermediate but was fully inspired by the design when I saw the photo of the designer. Most of the clothing is modeled by ladies of a smaller frame. Kudos to this project for that alone!!!

This is a perfect little light weight cardigan or fashion accessory. With Spring upon us and Summer coming. it's perfect for a cool evening or air conditioned theater. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. Even though it is marked intermediate, I would think a beginner would not have a problem with it. This pattern is perfect for all ages, my teenage niece loved it as much as I do.

I dont understand giving the designer a bad review simply because it is hot where a person lives. I live in Canada. A summer cardigan is a welcome item on a cool summer night. To avoid puckering the fabric and causing the back to be higher than the front, be careful when seaming the back edges together. Try to keep your seam uniform and not too tight. I plan on making this very soon. Regardless of climate, this looks light and airy. It will be perfect over a tank top. Thank you for sharing it with us.

So very pretty and this is a great design, I am still learning but am going to give it a try. I too live in Florida where it is very hot and humid most of the time, except when you go inside a store or into a restaurant where you are immediately transported to the Arctic with the cold AC. This would be perfect for those times.

Worked this up in a lovely denim cotton, but after sewing together the back is too high and front sags. Yes, I did block. It is now neatly folded until I forget about how disappointing it is and FROG it.

There is no such thing as a summer cardigan here in sweltering Florida where is goes to 108 degrees every day and the "cool" nights are no cooler than 75 degrees.

I have to agree. "Summer" crocheted items...scarves, sweaters, tank tops...whatever they come up with, make me sweat just thinking about them. I can't even crochet with one strand of yarn without the ac blowing on me, I can't imagine wearing something made out of yarn all over me. Makes me itch! I live in the So. Cal desert, btw.
