I’ve had so many requests for the written version of the YouTube tutorial I did for this long lacy crochet cardigan so finally here it is.
Weight 4 yarn
6mm crochet hook
Sizes xs ( s, m, l, xl )
Begin by chaining 70 ( 76, 82, 88, 94 ).
Row 1: Dc into 5th ch from hook, [skip 4 sts, (dc, ch 1, dc) into next st.], rep until 5 sts remaining. Skip 4, (dc, ch 1, dc) into last st. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 4, dc into same st. Now look for the middle two dc of the next cluster:
Into the first of the two middle dc, place (dc, ch 1, dc). Repeat this to the end by placing (dc, ch 1, dc) into each of the two middle dc of each cluster along.
At the end of the row make a (dc, ch 1, dc) into the last space of the row. Picture below
Repeat row 2 until you have a total of 42 rows
Front panel (make 2):
Ch 34 (40, 46, 46, 52)
Work in the same way as the back panel until you have 42 rows completed.
Sleeves (make 2):
Ch 46( 46, 52, 52, 58 )
Work in the same manner as the other panels until it is long enough to go from your arm pit to wrist.
Place the front panels on top of the back panel. Sew the top edge of each from panel to the back panel. Then attach yarn to bottom corner and sew up along the side seam until you are 5 inches from the top. This 5 inch space will be your armhole.
Next fold your sleeve lengthwise and sew up along the edge. Sew the sleeve to the armhole making sure the sleeve seam is facing downwards. Repeat for the other side.
And your cardigan is now finished. I do have a YouTube tutorial for this cardigan so please feel free to check it out
