Look Fashion! Crochet Ribbed Button Cardigan
The Pompeii Cardigan is the brother of the Amalfi pullover! It features the same knit stitches with wide ribs, wide flared sleeves and an oversized boxed silhouette. This ribbed crochet cardigan has a round neckline and large buttons for a relaxed, casual look.
The entire Pompeii cardigan is made in double height and slip stitches, that's it! Let's combine these easy crochet stitches into a very simple 4-row repeat. To make it even easier, the 4 row repeat only consists of 2 different "base" rows and after knitting it a couple of times it will get stupid.
The mesh rib marking is created by working on the back loops of a stitch. Whenever you are looking for the back loops, turn the stitches towards you so that the top of the 'V' is facing me. The back loop will be the 'V' wire that is furthest from you.
It is very important to insert the crochet into the back loops because that is what creates the thick ribbed texture. If you don't work on the back straps, the front of your sweater will lie flat with no ribs!
Another tip for knitting the Pompeii cardigan is to keep the single crochets loose and about the same width as the double crochet. This will help you keep the gauge uniform so your sweater fits you well when you wear it, and being able to easily insert your crochet needle into the slip stitches will help you crochet a lot faster.
