Short Sleeve Drape Front Cardigan

With Summer here and the temperatures rising, I have been missing some of my long sleeve shirts.  Particularly my drape front cardigan.  Here is my short sleeve version in fun summer colors.

  I used my long sleeve cardigan to trace a pattern onto freezer paper.  There were only 4 pieces.  The back, two sides, and the strip that goes along the front and neckline.

Add a floppy hat and I am ready for summer!
