The Rice Cardi (Bolero) Free Summer Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

Hey there Crafties! I think its safe to say that summer is in full swing! Here in Missouri ( I live near the river 😅), its always sweltering which means that now is the time for short sleeves and light, cottony accessories. As you all may know, I'm on a bit of a break from my YouTube channel right now so that I can map out the rest of this year's content.

Originally, I wasn't going to release any patterns until I came back in July but, I'm just so antsy! I've been teasing this crochet pattern on Instagram for the last month and a half with little to no details and now I'm at my wit's end. So here we are.

The Rice Bolero is actually a spinoff of a much larger project. While I was in the process of

designing said project, I saw how this portion could stand on its own. Though the written pattern is available here for free, you can support the blog and my other content by purchasing the PDF from this website's shop or from my Etsy shop.

If you enjoy my content, I'd greatly appreciate the support. Otherwise, Happy Making!
