Want to fully express your creativity this season?

There is no better way to do this than a fancy crochet cardigan. Cardis are a lovely crocheted garment, soft, warm and cozy. They are a joy to make and to wear. Moreover, they are highly customizable, you can easily make it a perfect fit by adjusting width, length and arm length. To add more happiness and more colors to your cardi and to keep the summer with you a little longer, the granny square cardigan is simply perfect. Below are my favourite patterns to make this happen.

    Not into granny squares as clothing.
    Prefer to keep them as blankets.
