The Sarasota Cardi crochet pattern is a perfect accessory for any outfit! Wear it over a tank top, swimsuit, or even a long sleeve shirt! Add fringe for some flair if you desire!
I used Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn for my sample Sarasota Cardi. This yarn is a DK (#3) weight yarn that is made of 60% acrylic and 40% polyamide. It is very soft! However, you can use any DK weight yarn that you prefer.I have used it for a number of designs, including the Derby Duster Vest and Springtime Sweater. This yarn has a lovely drape and stitch definition and is a favorite DK weight yarn of mine!
This crochet pattern comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS to 4X.
It is a side by side workup with the back sewn together to create the kimono.
The pattern is rated intermediate in difficulty. You will need to know the basic stitches plus the dc3tog stitch for this project.
