Summer Crochet Cardigans

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Crochet lace is a beautiful technique for making super attractive and very elegant projects. It makes use of voids to really define the shapes of the crocheted portions of the projects. What’s really interesting is that depending on the complexity of the patten, this is not actually a very difficult technique, and lends itself well to quickly working up a garment to suit your taste, individuality and character. You could use ombre yarns to great effect, but the variegated texture made using this technique works equally well, or perhaps better in monochrome.
