Imagine this: You’ve finally made it to the warm part of spring. It’s 85 degrees outside and you’re looking hella cute in your new shorts and t-shirt. You’re getting comfortable in the new reclining seats AMC just installed in the movie theatre and Chris Hemsworth is about to grace you with his likeness of Thor in The Avengers *swoon*. But you can’t focus because you’re FREEZING! Whoever decided movie theatres need to be kept at a crisp 60 degrees deserves to be fired! Enter the Sophia Cardi, an easy crochet sweater pattern made for moments like this.
Find a printer friendly, PDF version of the Sophia Cardi pattern in my Etsy and Ravelry shops and on TLYarnCrafts.com. PDF version includes 4 beautifully formatted pages of instruction written in US crochet terms.
The design for the Sophia Cardi was inspired by the simplicity and freshness that spring brings. The combination of lightweight yarn and basic shapes makes for a piece that is flattering for all body types and can be styled in infinite ways. Beginner crocheters will appreciate how easy the Sophia Cardi is to make while advanced makers will whiz through this easy project. Each panel is made separately then seamed together for a perfect fit.
Achieving a spring-ready cardigan is no easy task. The Sophia Cardi went through dozens of variations before I found the perfect stitch and yarn combination. The modified V-stitch I landed on allows the sweater to breathe while the 100% Merino wool offers warmth without heaviness. The color blocking brings personality to the piece without being overly warm.
I’m so honored to work with my friends at Ewe Ewe Yarns again for this fun project. I’ve used their Ewe So Sporty for a few projects, including the Kent Beanie, the Suffolk Cabled Mitts, and the Squared Away baby blanket. Ewe Ewe offers their 100% Merino wool superwash solid color yarns in a rainbow of vibrant colors and multiple weights. They’re a great luxury yarn to elevate basic projects. It was the perfect choice for the Sophia Cardi and gave me the exact effect I was going for.
