New Crochet Pattern: Craspedia Cropped Cardigan
I’m happy to announce the release of my latest crochet pattern, Craspedia Cropped Cardigan. Made from springy sock yarn, it’s the perfect light weight cardigan for summer breezes and air conditioning. I’m one of those people that doesn’t love to show my upper arms, so this design comes with full coverage sleeves that have a slight poof on the top for fun.
Craspedia is made in five pieces from the bottom up, which are then seamed and edged. The pieces are quick to work and easy to transport, plus they allow for detailed (but not complicated) shaping that hugs your body in all the right places. I love the drape and color that sock yarn gives, but I also think one made with a nice cotton would be lovely. The pattern comes in five sizes for 34.5 (39.5, 43.5, 47.5, 51.5)” bust circumference.
I’ve been sitting on this pattern for quite a while, waiting to get it right (thanks to the help of my tech editor, KJ Hay). It’s available on Ravlery and Craftsy for $6.50. I’m happy to send it out into the world and hope to see your versions soon!
