The Rebekka crochet cardigan is a cute little cardigan with great texture. It features a scalloped edge and a thumb hole for those chilly nights. You could also stop at the armhole and leave this as a short-sleeved cardigan. There are so many color options that you could do or make it one solid color. I am sure you will be pleased with this beautiful cardigan.

Hello, My name is SheriAnn. I am a crochet designer and all around crafter. I dabble in a little bit of everything, but crochet is my passion. I love the idea of turning string into something beautiful. I am a Gamma to four grandchildren, two boys and two girls. I make everything for them. They are my muse. My youngest granddaughter is showing an interest in crocheting, but she is only 3. Maybe next year I can teach her. i have given her her own set of hooks, some yarn and a backpack to hold it all like mine. She sits next to me and tried to "work" like I do. I would love to watch her grow and learn this skill. I suffer from depression and ADHD. It is hard sometimes to keep myself from having such negative thoughts about life. I love my life with my kids and grandkids and sometimes I just can't keep the dark place at bay.
