The Barcelona Summer Kimono Cardigan crochet pattern by Jessica Reeves Potasz results in a modern and comfortable garment. Using Lion Brand Mandala DK yarn and a 6.0 mm hook, it gets a lightweight fabric perfect for warm weather. The cardigan comes in two sizes, XS/S and M/L, to suit different body types.

Work this kimono using an open mesh stitch pattern that is airy and simple enough for more advanced beginners. The kimono is elegantly simple – just two crocheted rectangles attached along the shoulder seams. Double crochet stitches make up the majority of the work. However, there is a section of crossed double crochet stitches along the bottom that can be more difficult.  This kimono can be easily paired with any summer outfit, whether you are updating a plain tank top and jeans or accessorizing a dressier look.
