From the blogger: The Sand Dune Sweater is a modern, loose crochet sweater that’s designed to keep you warm at the beach, at sea or on cool summer nights. This design uses half double crochet, double crochet in the front and back loops, and loop stitches to create a wonderfully textured, light and airy cropped sweater. The loop stitch technique along the body and arms creates an airy, breathable sweater. This modern crochet sweater is also accompanied by a video tutorial.
"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. "
"The Retro Cropped Cardi is a vintage-inspired little jacket, designed to keep you feeling warm and looking great! If you’ve never made a sweater before, do not fear. Easy stitches and shaping make this a great pattern for beginner garment makers. The main stitch is the extended single crochet – and there is a video tutorial for the stitch included below! Prefer a longer, “non-cropped” sweater? Just add more rows to each piece – just remember to add the same number of rows to the back and both fronts! The Retro Cropped Cardigan is just that easy. Do also remember to add that extra length into your side seams, and purchase additional yarn if needed. And if you prefer a different sleeve style, instructions for that are included too!"

The Cropped Cardigan is the perfect accessory in the summer. Great to add for an extra layer in the evening without adding too much. It’s a great quick addition for your wardrobe since double crochet stitches are the main stitch used and the fact that this cropped cardigan is half the size of a normal sweater!
