Design by Sarah Ruane from Ned & Mimi.
The Spring Buds Cardi is an easy crochet cardigan pattern, made from 2 rectangles with sleeves! And it is lightweight too, making it perfect for unpredictable spring days.
This cardigan has a casual, relaxed fit, with about 3″ – 5″ / 7.5 – 12cm of ease added at the bust.
The drop shoulder design and 3/4 length sleeves make this a great cardi to throw on over a tank top or tee. And use a lightweight/#3/DK yarn for a great drape and just enough warmth 🙂
