The "Little Bell Cardie" crochet pattern
This gorgeous cardigan is perfect for popping on over a T' shirt and leggings!
Designed with raglan sleeves for a lovely fit, a button down front, and a pretty peplum that flares out like a little bell!
As with all my cardigan patterns, I have designed the Little Bell Cardie "all in one piece" with no parts to join together! Hooray!
