When I first learned to crochet, I liked making lots of accessories, like hats and scarves. I was terrified to try out making my own garments. I thought they would be too challenging and wouldn’t fit right. Now that I design my own pieces, I can start solving some of the issues I had as a crochet newbie.

The Dina Cardi is my answer for crocheters who are ready to try their first garment. It uses basic stitches like single crochet and double crochet, as well as simple techniques like crocheting in the back loop. Each of the panels created comes together easily for a sweater that looks great on everyone.

Much of the character of the Dina Cardi comes from the lovely yarn used – Ultra Mellowspun from Mary Maxim. Ultra Mellowspun is a delightfully soft acrylic/nylon blend yarn, available in dozens of vibrant colors. You can really get carried away building 3-color palettes for the Dina Cardi.

I had the great opportunity to design this cardigan in collaboration with Mary Maxim, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Not only is the crochet pattern approachable, but the finished project is modern and easy to wear. Layer it over your favorite tee-shirt and high waisted jeans for an effortlessly chic OOTD (outfit of the day).
