Are you ready for warm summer days and cool summer nights? With the NEW Summer Sultan Cardi you will be! This new, airy, and cool cardigan is perfect for something light to wear over a tank top this summer. Throw it on with your favorite capris and jewelry and you’ll be stylin’ all summer long!
Summer Sultan Cardi
The Summer Sultan Cardi pattern ranges from XS to 5XL. For this cardigan we are using the Sultan Stitch, a quick and easy-to-crochet stitch that gives great drape and allows air to flow, keeping you both covered and cool.
I decided to use Cotlin yarn from WeCrochet for this pattern, a 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen blend. This colorway is “Cerise” and it is the perfect shade of pink! ♥
Because of the high content of cotton this makes the yarn more breathable and great for warm weather wearables. Not to mention the fabulous texture and drape provided by the linen mixed in! * chef’s kiss *
Cotlin yarn (lightweight/size 3/DK weight, 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen)
-approx. yardage (1050, 1175, 1350, 1475, 1600, 1700, 1885, 2000, 2200)
Crochet hook in size G/4mm
Sizing: (XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)
The body of this cardigan is designed to be a bit more roomy than normal. I wanted to have a nice, relaxed fit.
I almost always make two versions of any wearable pattern I design. This not only helps me to double check (along with my amazing testers) that the pattern is correct, but to check yardage using a substitute yarn and to come up with other options in case the recommended yarn (Cotlin in this case) is not an option for you.
Other yarn options that would work great for this summer cardi would be Sugarwheel cotton (“Endless Sea” pictured here), or Lion Brand Comfy Cotton, or any lightweight cotton blend yarn that allows you to meet gauge. As always, buy an extra skein just in case!
I hope you love this pattern as much as I enjoyed creating it. I plan to wear mine all summer, everywhere! Great around the campfire, for roasting marshmallows, for running errands, or for chillin’ on the couch with the family. ♥
