Crochet this bright V-neck Cardi from Noro to add to your Spring & Summer wardrobe. This cardi is a great layering piece, and adds a ton of color! The bodice of the cardigan begins a few rows under the bust line. The back and fronts are worked separately to the shoulder edge in crown pattern stitch, using the smaller hook. After sewing the side seams, the mesh skirt is worked downwards from the bodice in one piece - the sleeves are worked in a similar way.
