Crochet Granny Square Cardigan Sweater | Fashion

This is the first full sweater that I have created and I love how it turned out! It is soft and heavy and warm! I live in the desert so I can wear a t-shirt underneath and still be warm even in the wintertime!

The PDF version is available at Etsy and Ravelry.
