Short And Sweet Child's Cardigan

Lion Brand« Babysoft®

GAUGE:

16 half double crochet + 12 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Short And Sweet Child's Cardigan Reviewed by kathy rybczyk on 2014-03-22 ****
Used the yarn to assemble the sweater. Soft yarn is a must. I used Baby yarn thinking it would be soft enough but it worked up too rigid. Not sure what I did wrong but when connecting the sleeve to the bodice there was a small fold under the arm.
