I'm so happy to introduce the Jazzy Cardigan! This cardigan is really versatile as it is so simple to throw on a chillier day or even wear it indoors when crocheting and you feel cold! I used the magical Jazzy Bundle (hence the cardigan name) from Zen Yarn Garden and I couldn't be more happy with the outcome!

This simple cardigan is made using the Jazzy bundle in the most amazing colorways, Jazzy OOAK, Jazzy Splatter & Obsidian. Each bundle includes 3 skeins of fingering weight, made from 70% sw merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon. The yarn is really soft and works up pretty lovely! If you want to get your bundle (Jazzy or Vivid) you can now get it 20% off using the coupon code LITTLETHINGS using this link.

This cardigan is made up of the V-stitch.  If you know how to double crochet and make chain stitches, you should be good to go! The cardigan is made up by crocheting 2 rectangles together making it a pretty easy garment with almost no seaming necessary! Also it’s pretty simple to add more length to your cardigan if needed by crocheting for more rows on each rectangle.
