Catalina Cardi Free Crochet Pattern

The Catalina Cardi is the perfect piece to transition into fall or spring! Who doesn’t love a short sleeved, open front, booty covering cardigan? Not to mention this is a great layering piece! Wear it over a tank top, or even long sleeves! I know you will love this Cardi as much as I do! Seriously, I had trouble taking it off so I could write you this pattern!

Happy Making, Friend!
