CROCHET PATTERN - BABY CARDIGAN
***PATTERN INCLUDES 3 STEP BY STEP PHOTO TUTORIALS ***
WRITTEN IN USA ENGLISH CROCHET TERMS - UK Terms HERE
Designed by me during the Coronavirus lockdown, this little Jacket represents fun and freedom to play outside again.
A warm and cosy Jacket, made to be worn throughout the year :-)
I have designed the jacket “all in one piece” so there are no seams or making up to do, only the appliques to sew on once the Jacket is complete.
I have used 2 colours of soft Aran weight yarn for the jacket and 2 colours of DK weight for the appliques, a great pattern for using up your yarn scraps!
