PART ONE

Hello Everyone! This week we are going to be making the Back Panel of the Cardigan. It is worked from the bottom up. Although the instructions are written for the suggested lengths above, you can make the cardigan longer or shorter by adjusting the number of times you repeat Row 4. Just keep in mind you will need to do the same to the Front Panels as well.

BACK PANEL

Row 1: Ch 61 (65, 73, 81, 89, 93, 101, 109, 117) sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch2, sk 1 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * across to last st, sc in last. (31, 33, 37, 41, 45, 47, 51, 55, 59 sc)

Row 2: Ch1, turn, sc in first st, *ch2, sk 1 st, sc in next ch2 space, repeat from * across, sc in last sc. (31, 33, 37, 41, 45, 47, 51, 55, 59 sc)

Repeat Row 2 (17) more times, or until Back Panel reaches 5” tall when slightly stretched.

Row 3: Ch4 (counts as tr), turn, sk 1 st, (2tr, ch2, dc) in next ch2 space, *sk next ch2 space, (2tr, ch2, dc) in next ch2 space, repeat from * across, tr in last. (32, 34, 38, 42, 46, 48, 52, 56, 60 tr)

Row 4: Ch4, turn, (2tr, ch2, dc) in each ch2 space across, tr in top of previous row’s beg ch4. (32, 34, 38, 42, 46, 48, 52, 56, 60 tr)

Repeat Row 4 until entire piece measures desired finished length when stretched slightly. See chart on Page 1 for suggested length per size.

Fasten off and weave in ends. Back Panel finished.

If you increased the length in Part One, increase by the same number of rows by repeating Row 4.

FRONT PANEL (MAKE 2)

Row 1: Ch 25 (29, 33, 37, 41, 45, 45, 49, 53) sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch2, sk 1 ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * across to last st, sc in last. (13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 23, 25, 27 sc)

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Sew Front Panels to Back Panel

With a tapestry needle and yarn, carefully sew the Front Panels to the Back Panel using the photo as a guide. I used the mattress stitch.

First, sew evenly along the shoulder making sure you line up your stitches.

Then the sew the sides together, leaving a (6.5”, 7”, 7.5”, 8”, 8.5”, 9”, 9.5”, 10”, 10.5”) Armhole opening for you to make the Sleeves.

Fasten off and weave in all ends

PART THREE

Part 3 is where it all comes together! We will be making both the button band, and the bracelet length sleeves. If you like longer sleeves, you can repeat the rounds makes with a *. Every 3 rounds you add will increase the length by 2”. Remember to make which rounds you add, so that you can repeat this on the second sleeve.

 

BUTTON BAND

You are now going to crochet a ribbing around the front opening of the Cardigan. Place your slsts evenly spaced around so that you are not placing too many, or too few in each end row.

Row 1: With the Cardigan laying face up in front of you, reattach yarn to bottom left corner with a slst,. Ch6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, slst to Cardigan. (5 sc)

Row 2: Slst to Cardigan, turn, working in the back loops only, sk 2 slsts, sc across. (5 sc)

Row 3: Ch1, turn, working in the back loops only, sc across, slst to Cardigan. (5 sc)

Row 5: Ch1, turn, working in the back loops only, sc 2, ch2, sk 1 st, sc 2,  slst to Cardigan. (4 sc)

Button Hole made!

Row 6: Slst to Cardigan, turn, working in the back loops only, sk 2 slsts, sc 2, sc in ch2 space, sc 2. (5 sc)

Row 7: Repeat 3.

Row 8: Repeat 2.

Row 9: Repeat 3.

Row 10: Repeat 2.

Row 11: Repeat 3.

Row 12: Repeat 2.
