Product details

Cruel Summer is a breezy, dolman-sleeve layering cardi knit up in Berroco's gorgeous linen-blend yarn Chai. It's perfect for throwing on over a tank or tee (even on those steamy hot summer days!). It's knit seamlessly from the bottom-up and features a lace mesh stitch pattern along the hem and front bands. I have a video mini lesson that shows you how to work this stitch pattern, tips on reading your knitting so you can avoid mistakes, how to work the slip stitch edging and tips on working with linen yarn (link in pattern to watch the lesson).

Shown in size 2, being worn with approx 3”/8 cm of positive ease at the hem (high hip) and approx 13”/33 cm of positive ease at the bust. I recommend picking a size that provides you with positive ease at both the hem and at the bust/chest. Check out my tips page (link in pattern) for more advice on how to pick a size based on these 2 measurements.
