What do you get when you combine a shawl and a cardigan? A shardi! Yes, that is a made up word, but it’s cute so we’re going with it!
The Camellia Shardi is a rectangular shawl/wrap/shrug that has sleeve cuffs added on each end!
It’s super cozy and feels like being wrapped in a blanket! No worrying about it falling off with the sleeves on, and it can easily be styled a number of ways! It’s the perfect layering piece for the changing weather!
I first created the Camellia Sweater pattern a few years ago, and have since made another one. I remembered how much I loved this easy stitch combo, and since have been making everything with it! There is now a hat, cowl, and blanket in this collection! There is even a crochet washcloth with a tutorial for the stitch!
When I was thinking about transitional pieces to wear as the weather gets cooler, this stitch combo came to mind first thing! And I just love the shardi style, so I decided to create the Camellia Shardi!
This crochet shawl with sleeves is made with DK (#3) weight yarn. I used Paintbox Simply DK, in the colorway Vanilla Cream, for mine. Simply DK is one of my favorite 100% acrylic DK yarns. It’s super affordable and comes in a huge variety of colors! It can be machine washed and dried, and is very soft!
The shardi is worked in rows to create a rectangle first, and then the rectangle is folded in half and the sleeves are worked in the round along each end of the rectangle.
You can easily make this more of a shrug style, by sewing the rectangle ends together at the sleeve cuff.
This pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. It comes with instructions for 3 sizes – small, medium, and large. These three sizes will fit a bust range of 28″ – 64″.
