Traditional scallops are updated with modern color choices in this fun and boxy cardigan. It’s intended to be worn open, and it’s so easy to throw on over a t-shirt and jeans, or whatever you choose!
Body and sleeves begin with a striped wavy pattern, perfect for popping in your favorite colors. The piece is continued upward in a single color using simply double and single crochet in alternating rows.
The only shaping that occurs in this piece is at the front neck. This would make an excellent first crochet garment!
