Using allhemp 3 yarn, this cardi is worked entirely in the V stitch pattern which Sue describes as 'a favorite crochet stitch' because you always know where to insert your hook!" Hilger, a onetime yarn store owner, fell in love with allhemp3 some time ago. This cardi has set-in sleeves and looks amazing on all body types. American crochet terminology.
