Folks, have you ever seen a crochet waterfall cardigan?
I am not sure it is something a ton of people know about, but I just think they are oh so pretty!

So, I decided to try making one.
Now I have seen a lot of waterfall designs that are suitable for fall or winter, but I really wanted to do one for spring or summer.
And, thus, I came up with the “Spring into Summer Waterfall Cardigan” and I shared it as a guest designer on The Crafter Life.
The Granny Stitch
Most people know that the classic granny stitch is made up of a series of 3 double crochet (dc) clusters.
This is true even when you are making granny squares. rather than crocheting in rows.
To make the cardigan lighter for spring or summer, I decided to do a granny stitch variation and only use a 2 double crochet (dc) cluster throughout.

Yarn Details: “It’s All About the Yarn Baby!”
For this project I chose Bernat Baby Sport in color way Coral Crocus because it is lightweight and I am totally in love with the color!
I think it is absolutely the best color and works great for both spring and summer, which was important to me as I designed the cardigan to be a lovely transition piece.
As much as I totally love how the project turned, I do think if I make another one I may use a slightly softer yarn with a bit more drape to it, but overall I quite happy with my choice of yarn for this project.
