The Pompeii Cardigan: Tips and Tricks for a Ribbed Crochet Masterpiece
The Pompeii cardigan is the counterpart of the Amalfi jumper! It boasts the same wide rib knit stitches, flared sleeves, and boxy, oversized silhouette. The ribbed crochet cardigan has a circular neckline and large buttons, perfect for a casual, relaxed look.
The entire cardigan is crafted using double and satin knit stitches. These stitches are combined to create a simple 4-row pattern that's easy to repeat. To make it even easier, the pattern only has 2 different "base" rows, making it a breeze to memorize.

The ribbed mesh pattern is achieved by working in the back loops of the stitch. Ensure that you're working with the back loops by turning the stitches towards you so that the top of the 'V' faces upward. The back loop is the 'V' loop that is farthest away from you.
It's crucial to insert the crochet hook into the back loops to create the thick, ribbed texture. If you work with the front loops, the sweater's front will be flat with no ribs!
Another useful tip for crocheting the Pompeii cardigan is to keep the single crochet stitches loose and about the same width as the double crochet stitches.
This will ensure that the gauge remains even, and the sweater fits perfectly when worn. Additionally, being able to easily insert the hook into the slipped stitches will speed up the crocheting process.
