Crochet patterns and beautiful yarn combine to form a perfect recipe for a warm weather wardrobe. Nigrum, named after a variety of medicinal plant, is a loosely crocheted cardigan worked up in textural Bamboo Bloom. This makes for a lovely layering piece perfect over a simple dress or top. Bamboo Bloom’s amazing color palette offers extra temptation to make more than one of these cardigans.
