4.5 mm and 5 mm Crochet Hooks
STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS
ch = Chain
st(s) = Stitch(es)
sl st = Slip Stitch
yo = Yarn Over
sc = Single Crochet
fpsc = Front Post Single Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
bo = Bobble
- yo, insert hook into st, yo and pull through (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 of the loops. don’t pull through the last 2 loops. repeat this 4 more times in the same st, at the end you’ll have five uncompleted dc sts and 6 loops on the hook. finally, yo and pull through all six loops.
*Size: 6-9 months. H=28cm and 20cm from armhole, W=27cm, Arms=25cm and 16cm from armhole.
*US crochet terms are used in this pattern.
*’DC 10′ means DC into the next 10 stitches.
*’2 DC’ means place 2 DC into the same stitch.
*The turning chain ch 2 does NOT count as a DC, so work in very first st.
*Repeat instructions between asterisks (**) as many times as directed.
*Work a group of stitches within parentheses () all in the same stitch.
*Total stitches are indicated in between < >.
foundation: ch 55 measures 31cm (multiples of 3 + 1)
*work row 1 in back bump of the chain base.
ROW 1: sc in the 2nd ch from hook, sc in each st across, turn. <54>
ROW 2: ch 2, *dc 2, 2dc in same st, repeat from * until end, turn. <72>
ROW 3: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. <72>
ROW 4: ch 2, *dc 3, 2dc in same st, repeat from * until end, turn. <90>
ROW 5: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. <90>
ROW 6: ch 2, *dc 4, 2dc in same st, repeat from * until end, turn. <108>
ROW 7: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. <108>
ROW 8: ch 2, *dc 5, 2dc in same st, repeat from * until end, turn. <126>
ROW 9: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. <126>
*join for the armholes in row 10. this is where you could add rows if you want to make it bigger, before you join the armholes.
BODY (joining armhole)
armhole separation: count 18 sts and place st markers into 18th sts on both front sides. leave 27 sts for each armhole and 36 sts for the back.
*for each bobble st placement, we will need 8 sts in total. there are 72 sts in total after armhole sts subtracted. (126-27-27=72) we’ll leave 2 sts for each front edge, 4 in total(not going to be used for bobble st placement). we also need more sts for the armpits. since we need multiples of 8, we can add 8 more sts. so, for each armhole separation, we need: 4+8 = 12, 12/2 = 6 chains.
ROW 10: ch 2, dc 18, ch 6, sk 27 sts, dc 36, ch 6, sk 27 sts, dc 18, turn. <84>
ROW 11: ch 1, sc 2, *bo, sc7, repeat from * until 4 sts left, 2sc in same st (to complete 7 sts before the last bo), bo, sc 2, turn. <85>
ROW 12: ch 2, dc in each st across, turn. <85>
ROW 13: ch 1, sc 6, *bo, sc 7, repeat from * until 7 sts left, bo, sc 6, turn. <85>
ROW 14: ch 2, dc in each st across, turn. <85>
ROW 15: ch 1, sc 2, *bo, sc 7, repeat from * until 3 sts left, bo, sc2, turn. <85>
ROWS 16-28: repeat rows 11-14. (measures 27 cm in total)
ROW 29: ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. <85>
ROWS 30-32: repeat row 28.
Left Front Edge Border
continue from bottom,
first row: ch 1, sc 1 in each row space all the way up, turn. <32>
second row(work for button holes): ch 1, sc 2, ch 2, sk 2, sc 6, ch 2, sk 2, sc 6, ch 2, sk 2, sc 8, ch 2, sk 2, sc 2, turn. <32>
third row: ch 1, sc in each st across with 2 sc for chain spaces. Fasten off. <32>
Right Front Edge Border
insert your hook in the bottom corner st, ch 1, sc in the same st, and sc in each st across, turn. complete the border in 3 rows as above but without button holes.
there are 27+2+6=35 sts in total for armhole. but we need multiples of 8 for bobble stitch placement, so we are gonna drop this 32 sts by skipping 3 sts in total.
start from the middle of armpit in clockwise direction.
ROW 1: ch 2, dc in same st, sk 1, dc, around dc row place dc, dc 27, around dc row place dc, sk 1, dc, sk 1, join with sl st to 1st dc, sl st, turn. <32>
ROW 2: ch 1, sc 3, *bo, sc 7*3, bo, sc 4, sl st, turn. <32>
ROW 3: ch 2, dc in st across, sl st, turn. <32>
ROW 4: ch 1, *sc 7, bo*4, sl st, turn. <32>
ROW 5: ch 2, dc in each st across, sl st, turn. <32>
ROWS 6-18: repeat rows 2-5. instead of decreasing, change your hook to 4.5 mm to make it narrower after row 11.
ROWS 19-23: ch 1, sc in each st across. fasten off.
*repeat for the other sleeve.
*since we didn’t work in 3 sts of armpit, a little gaps may occur. it’s okay. but if you don’t like, you can sew them later on.
change yarn to white color. hold the cardigan inside facing you. find the first sc of first row. (don’t count border)
ROW 1: insert hook from front to back and to front again, grab the yarn and make a ch, into same st fpsc, fpsc until 3 sts left, turn. <55>
ROW 2: ch 5, into same st dc, *sk 2, (dc, ch 2, dc), repeat from until 3 sts left, sk 2, dc, turn.
ROW 3: ch 1, sl st to ch 2 space, ch 3 as 1st dc, 4dc in same space, *sc between 2 v-sts, 5dc in v-st, repeat from * to last v-st, into last v-st 4dc,ch 2, and join with sl st to v-st space. ch 1. fasten off.
