Cottage Breeze is **the** cardi for summer. Light, breezy, open filet fabric, and easy construction all come together to create a fun and quick to stitch cardi. Seriously. Quick. The sample took me all of a night to make.
You’ll need two skeins of Lion Brand Scarfie for the gradient ‘faded’ look BUT you can use any bulky weight yarn (or even two strands of worsted held together if you’d like) just make sure you achieve the correct gauge.
Is gauge important? Kind of. I didn’t make a swatch I simply worked the first 18 rows of the pattern and tried it on for fit. If you’d like to use this method – just make sure you’re prepared to frog if it comes to that!
Overall I LOVE this cardi and it’s SO much fun to stitch.

Cardi is worked in one piece from the back of the neck down. If more increases are needed, simply work increase rows and try on as you crochet for a perfect customized fit!
The gradient of colors occurs simply by changing color when one ball runs out, I joined the other color. You may choose one or two or three colors! Have fun!
