Blush of Summer Crochet Cardigan

Lenka’s cardigan is the perfect choice for summer and not only because of the juicy colors. The lightweight structure, breezy openwork and useful pockets – all contribute to the awesomeness of this pattern. The smallest size uses as little as two skeins of yarn, so don’t hesitate to try it.

Summer Splendor Cardigan

I love Jennifer’s choice of crochet stitch because it’s elegant and very classy. Paired with a blush pink yarn, this oversized summer cardi oozes summer vibes. I’d argue that it will become your new summer staple, as it’s extremely versatile – looking great with a t-shirt and jeans, as well as with a fancy dress.
