The best yarn for this spring cardigan crochet pattern.

This lacy spring cardigan pattern use 100% cotton yarn with DK weight. The cotton yarn is perfect for the summer and spring seasons because they are breathable and feel smooth on your skin.

Cotton yarn also has a good weight that will create a beautiful drape to the crochet clothes.

If you do not have cotton yarn in hand you can switch up to any kind of plant fiber content instead.

Acrylic and wool yarn also work for this easy crochet cardigan as well but you will not get the pretty drape as cotton yarn.

Let’s get started!
