Country Cute Cardi

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 dc + 6 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1. Cardi is worked in one piece beg at lower edge.
2. When Cardi has reached armhole length, chs are worked for sleeves. You’ll need a separate strand of yarn to make the sleeve chs, so before beginning, cut a length about 3 yds. (3 m) long, and set it aside until you reach the yoke portion of the Cardi.

Country Cute Cardi Reviewed by Melissa Jensen on 2014-08-31 *****
I made this pattern in two evenings. I altered it slightly to fit a smaller child. This pattern is very easy to understand and worked up pretty quick. (It took me two evenings to finish or aprox. four hours). I used less than two balls of Lion Brands Amazing yarn in Pink Sands (a 4/worsted weight yarn) and a J hook (which is the one recommended for the pattern) and followed the size 11-12 years directions exactly. The cardigan fits my daughter who wears size 3T clothing. It is just a little large on her, so you could probably follow the 9-10 years directions for a better fit for that size.
