The summer solstice is just ahead. What better way to enjoy the long, slow coast through the summer than by making dedicated long cardigans? The longest day of the year is special, thus many cultures regard it as a turning point of the year. Furthermore, it’s also relatively easy to make so that an adventurous beginner can easily attack this with confidence. Its beautiful lacy and flowing shape will be its own great reward, therefore treat yourself to a bit of solstice magic.

"The Summer Sea Cropped Cardigan is the perfect crochet cardigan for the warm season. It’s written for 9 sizes, from XS to 5XL. The focal point of this cardigan is the lacy stitch details at the back, while the rest of the cardigan has a more classic look. It's made in 5 pieces, which makes it a perfect "grab go" project, which is really convenient during the season where everyone is typically spending more time outside. The lace stitches on the cardigan also makes it great for spring and summer, where the thickness of the cardigan isn't as important. "
"Crochet cardigans are great to wear for seasonal transition pieces as they’re great for layering during the spring and fall. They’re also great for all day wear when the temps are bitter cold. Dress them up, dress them down. You really can’t go wrong when wrapped up in a crochet sweater to help keep you warm! In early August when I took Claire shopping for new clothes for school, she found a simple, grey cardigan that she loved. I purchased it for her, but it was so thin and not nearly warm enough for our frigid winters. I loved the simplicity of the store bought cardigan, the simple shape, classic fit, and pockets. Pockets were one of Claire’s “must have” requests. This is where inspiration for the Aurora Cardigan came from."
