Cropped Pink Cardi

October 14, 2019 No comments yet

Sharing my crocheted cropped pink cardi project that was just given to my granddaughter as a birthday gift. The Bebop Cardi pattern is free at the Lion Brand Yarn site. It is a cute cardi and one that I had my eye on for my granddaughter.


Because it was a gift, I wasn’t able be to do a size fit as I crocheted the project. I crocheted the medium size that is designed for 9-10 year olds. I used a J (6 mm) crochet hook with Very Pink Red Heart Soft yarn. I had 2 skeins of the yarn and used about 1.5 skeins to complete my version of the cropped cardi.

I did make a few modifications to the original pattern. As most people have shared about this pattern, as written, it is pretty short in length. I crocheted to row 8 for my medium sized vest as I wanted a longer length. At 8 rows it is 6.5 inches long.

Sweater Wrap Vest

I can now reveal my crocheted sweater wrap I crocheted for my DIL for Christmas. When I saw this cute sweater wrap pattern I just knew I had to crocheted it for her.


I used a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook and Lion Brand Heartland yarn in Grand Canyon. It took 3 skeins which was 753 yards (688 meters), 15 ounces to complete the wrap. Finished size is 9-1/2 inches wide by 82 inches long.

Here is a photo before I joined the back seam.

Here is a closeup of the stitching on the front side.

I did not get a photo taken of sweater vest on but here is a photo of the designer modeling her vest wrap.

Baby Blue Vest

I crocheted this baby blue vest for a co-worker’s daughter who is expecting a baby boy in a few months.

This baby vest is a newborn size and I used my free baby sweater vest crochet pattern. This is an easy and quick little pattern that takes less than 4 ounces of yarn to crochet.
