Beach Cardi Cover Up

Get ready for summer with this simple cardigan for beginners available in size S up to 5XL. It can be used as a beach cover-up or cardigan and is big enough to wrap around like a blankie when you’re cold after a swim. You’ll be surprised by the simplicity of this pattern: it’s made out of 3 rectangles with a simple and repetitive stitch forming little triangles. All you need to know is how to make chains, single crochet, double crochet and treble crochet. Normally longer cardigans use a lot of yarn, but thanks to this open stitch, you’ll only need 5 balls for size S!
