This light weight, cotton Cropped Cardi Crochet Pattern is great for summer nights when it’s not quite warm, but not cold enough for a jacket either. For this cardi I used my most favorite-est cotton ever (ever, ever!) The Pima Cotton from We Are Knitters. It is unbelieveably light and comfortable. There’s no other cotton like it!

But any cotton (or acrylic for that matter) can be used to make this simple cardi. It’s made by making 3 pieces (the back rectangle and 2 front rectangles), seaming them together, and then making the sleeves. It’s a super easy pattern consisting of all dc, with some front post and back post stitches for the ribbing.

CONSTRUCTION

Lay your front panels on top of the back. Sew the shoulders closed using your long end, yarn needle, and whip stitch. I used stitch markers to keep my stitches lined up.

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Sew the sides closed using your long end, yarn needle, and whip stitch. Sew to about row 12. Leave a space at the top for armholes.

Fasten off, weave in all the ends.

SLEEVES

Join yarn to the bottom of the armhole

Because everyone’s will be slightly different, I did not add stitch numbers to these rounds. To dc evenly around Work roughly 2 dc in the side of each row around.

Row 1: ch 2, dc evenly around the armhole, join to first dc with sl st

Row 2: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Repeat row 2 to row 8 (11) [14] {17}

Row 9 (12) [15] {18}: ch 2, dc2tog around (if there is an extra stitch, add another dc), join to the first dc with sl st

NOTE: test this width around your arm. If it’s too tight, you can instead: ch 2, *dc in first stitch, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around

Row 10 (13) [16] {19}: ch 2, dc in each stitch around

Row 11 (14) [17] {20}: ch 2, *fpdc, bpdc* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Repeat previous row 3 more times.

Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

Repeat for other sleeve.

And you’re done!! I hope you love this cute cardi 🙂

    1. Yes, you can make the starting ch longer. I increased the back about 6 ch for each size. Then you can make more rows. Hope this helps!! 🙂
