Moreover, this cardi was designed to be worn open and thus works perfectly as a little cover up over a tank top or dress

Seaglass Summer Cardi

The Seaglass Summer Cardi is a simple beach or swimsuit cover-up - that is just as beautiful back on solid land! When I began designing the Seaglass Summer Cardi, I was thinking exclusively in terms of a swimsuit coverup. But by the time it was done, I knew I wanted to wear it everywhere! It’s still great for the pool though - even after I soaked it, it dried super fast! The Seaglass Summer Cardi is truly one size fits all. It fits up to a 68” bust - and stretches too! Made with just 2 cakes of Red Heart It’s a Wrap Rainbow, it’s simple enough to be your first garment if you haven’t made one before!

Cropped Cardigan

This Cropped Cardigan has been designed and tested for sizes XS through to 5XL! The back and two front pieces are made separately and then joined together after they are made. The inside ribbing is done at the end! It’s mostly double crochet stitches so this pattern works up super quickly for a last minute addition to your wardrobe! 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!

Tulip Square Cardi

First, this summer cardigan is a real  classic design made fancier with amazing texture transitions. In particular, I absolutely adore the on point squares outlined by the thicker ridges, as well as the denser sleeves and hem. Furthermore, there are instructions for a large array of sizes, so that this is a cardi for anyone and everyone.
