Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You'll need to know the basic crochet stitches: how to chain, single-crochet and double-crochet.

Pattern Description:

This light cardigan is perfect for chilly summer nights.
Worked with Noro Kureyon and a larger hook than usually, the resulting fabric has drape and all the colorwork is done by the pretty yarn.

I esp. love the color change of the poppies along the bottom edging.

This cardigan was designed after the baby version Dancing poppies mini bolero , published in the book "crochet one skein wonders, 101 projects from crocheters around the world".

Additional notes are available at the end to add 3/4 sleeves to this cardigan instead of the little cap sleeves.

Made with Noro Kureyon yarn and 6 mm (J) hook
