The crochet sleeveless cardigan pattern is a simple design to create. It’s the perfect pattern if you’re new to making crochet tops. Crochet 3 panels and seam together with an opening for the neck. The beautiful lace stitch pattern replicates tiny pineapples that give this cardigan a tropical vibe.

“An optimist is the human personification of spring. ” –

-Susan J. Bissonette

My crochet sleeveless cardigan pattern is designed in Curio #3 from WeCrochet in Jalapeno.

It’s a lightweight cotton yarn perfect for warm temperatures.  It was a pleasure to work with and glided perfectly over my furls odyssey crochet hook.  The yarn has excellent stitch definition and blocked beautifully to showcase the lacework in this design.  It holds its shape well but is lightweight with a beautiful drape—the perfect yarn for Spring and Summer designs.

WeCrochet has so many gorgeous colours to choose from; you can check them out below.

Many of our designs include YouTube tutorials to help you through our crochet patterns step by step. Crochet garments intimate many crocheters, but we at Crochet Foundry endeavour to change that. We offer support in our Facebook group – Crochet Foundry Makes, and strive to provide more tutorials to our customers in the future.

The Spring Issue includes our designs with three guest designers joining us this season! April from OTHcrochetnook, Hannah from HanJan Crochet and Breann from Hooked on Homemade Happiness.
