mini mesh 1cardigan beginner friendly

I am just in loved with this super easy and oh so simple mini mesh crochet stitch and I want to make something with this beautiful stitch. So I end up with making more cardigan again! I am just love making them so much!

The mini mesh stitch is very simple and absolutely beginner friendly, the mesh effect will give the cardigan light and airy at the same time and it because hot and humid here in Thailand so I  love to use cotton yarn for everything including this pretty mini mesh cardigan as well. This cardigan also work well with acrylic yarn or wool yarn  to keep you a bit warmer in cold weather.

Mini mesh cardigan, They are made up from just 3 rectangles and the ribbing collar are work separately and attach them to the cardigan body. The cuff for the arm they are work separate as well.
