Crochet – Baby/Toddler Cardigan “Crumpet” by Erika Knight
A pretty tea-time cardigan, worked in a puff stitch crochet pattern, with integral sleeves and a little picot edge: optional five buttons to detail.
Works up nice and quick in 3 pieces and is easy to adjust to suit – add longer sleeves or body. We have made it in both 5ply cotton and 8ply cotton and would recommend you watch the sizing as it tends to be small without much give – we added extra rows to the sleeves so they would fit around little arms better.
We are suggesting this can be made from a variety of yarns, and have put into a table the estimated quantities for 3 yarns, from a choice of extra-fine merino wool, or 100% cotton in different weights.
