Evangeline Cardigan Free Crochet Along Week 2 by @thehooknook for Furls Crochet

Heyyy!!! Jessica here again from The Hook Nook! Ready for week two of our crochet along making the Evangeline Cardigan with Furls Crochet?! Let's go!

The back panel (along with this week’s directions) are great, mindless crocheting. Working on the “bones” of cardigans and garments are always my favorite because I love to design them so that they aren’t exceptionally difficult and you don't have to keep too much attention on each stitch you're placing. Makes for some fun, relaxing quiet time!

This week we will be working on both front panels. To do this, we will actually be turning our back panel rectangle on its side. Instead of continuing on with the front panels beginning on the wide side of the panel, we will be turning it to put the panels on a narrow end. I chose to do this to just give minor interest in the way the Moss Stitch lays when comparing the front and back panels. Simple decor choice!

Note: When placing your first row of new stitches on the narrow side of the back panel, be sure to keep them evenly spaced. You don’t want your stitches too stretched nor too close together. If you are unfamiliar with where to place your stitches, allow yourself the patience needed if you need to frog it a time or two before finding your sweet spot. Practice is the only way you’ll find all the little tips and tricks!

Let’s get started!

FRONT PANELS:

You will now work the front panel sections separately, crocheting from the shoulder line of the back panel piece that you have already worked.Turn work sideways so short side now becomes working side. Join the MC yarn to the corner using a Sl St. (The row counts are now started from Row 1 from this point forward)

Row 1. (Now creating the front panels of cardigan) Using MC, MS across, keeping your sts evenly spaced. (68, 72, 76, 78, 82, 86 sts)

Row 2. CH 1, turn. MS across. (68, 72, 76, 78, 82, 86 sts)

Row 3. CH 1, turn. MS across for (22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32 sts)

Repeat Row 3- 101 (101, 104, 104, 114,114) times more, or until your work measures 27 ( 27, 27 ¾, 27 ¾, 30 ½, 30 ½ )” from the beginning of the front panel section (the front panel will be ½" longer than the back panel).

Fasten off, leaving a 6" tail 

You will now work the second front panel section. Join the MC yarn to the corner using a Sl St.

I hope these front panels keep you busy this week! By now I’m sure you could do the moss stitch in your sleep - ha! Don’t worry, next week we will begin some of the fun stuff!

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
