Crochet Sunny lace cardi

Crochet Sunny lace cardi

Although yellow is not one of my favorite colors. I decided to use it for this crochet Sunny lace cardi design. The high-low hem gives this casual coat a chic finished touch while the vivid color would bring out a sophisticated look when pairing with black outfit. Furthermore, I really need to work on some bright color crochet project these days.

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

Special stitches used: 

2dc – V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet Sunny lace cardi pattern fits size XL ( chest size: 40 to 42 inches ).

Skill level: Easy

Gauge: 12 double crochet stitches x 5 rows = approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
