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 beautiful 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!

Amazing pattern

I consider myself to be very much a novice at crochet, I decided to try to teach myself during the last eighteen months..... I didn't ever think I would be able to attempt anything like this pattern but I was completely shocked, this pattern is wonderful, the instructions and accompanying photographs are really simple to follow, each step is described perfectly and the entire process of making this little cardigan is extremely enjoyable....... The fact that there is no "sewing up" to do at the end is another added bonus for me..... I have already bought a hat pattern from Kerry and I am looking at purchasing the "Bobtail" jumper pattern too.... Kerry's patterns are truly inspirational!

Hi Tracy
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I do try to make the patterns easy to read and enjoyable to make, so i'm glad you also think so.
Best wishes

Day 2 of creating!

First time I have used my basic crochet skills to make a garment and I am thrilled how well the pattern is written and how I can follow it so easily with only a minimum skill set! I’ve already completed the peplum and tomorrow I’m starting my buttonholes! I’m so pleased with how it is looking ....can’t wait for the next bit! Thankyou for taking the time and effort with all the precise and easy to follow instructions.

Hello Fiona
Thank you so much for taking the time to send such a lovely review. I am really pleased that you found it easy to follow and that you are pleased with how it looks. I am sure someone will be really pleased to receive it.
All the best

Gorgeous pattern!

Wow! Pattern looks beautiful, started on it straight away and loving how easy it is.

Great tutorial to follow, your patterns are always so clear and so pretty, I love em!

Love the nine "proper sizes" too! Nine! You are amazing! (None of this "change your hook size to get 5 more sizes, lol! can't stand it when designers do that.)
I can now make one each for my four granddaughters, so excited :-)

Thanks for another great design Kerry, you have the best patterns! 5*****

Hi Gail
I would just like to thank you for such a wonderful review. I do try to be the best i can be and give as much to my patterns as i can. If you are ok with it I would love to see pictures once the grandchildren have their cardigans?
Many thanks again
