Round-About Cropped Cardi

Lion Brand« Heartland

GAUGE:

For SIZE S: 4 V-sts = 3 in. (7.5 cm) + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with G-6 (4.25 mm) hook;
For SIZE M/L: 5 V-sts + 7 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with H-8 (5 mm) hook;
For SIZE 1X/2X: 6 V-sts = 5 1/4 in. (13.5 cm) + 6 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over V-st pattern with I-9 (5.5 mm) hook.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

V-st (V-stitch) (Dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or sp.
V-st-INC (V-stitch increase) (Dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) in indicated st or sp.

NOTES:

1. Cardi is worked in two pieces. Each piece forms half of the collar and half of the body.
2. Each half is worked back and forth in rows in a semi-circle shape, from the armholes outwards.
3. The pieces are overlapped at the back. The Cardi is meant to be worn with a variable amount of overlap at the front, allowing the Cardi to fit a range of sizes.
4. Use the hook that allows you to achieve the gauge specified for the size you want to make.
5. Increases are made in two different ways; 1) a V-st-INC is worked into a ch-1 sp, 2) a V-st is worked into the sp between V-sts. When the pattern says to work a V-st in the sp between V-sts, work into the sp between the V-st just worked and the next V-st.
6. Stitch markers are used to separate the body sts and the collar sts. All body shaping increases are worked in the center section, and all collar increases are worked in the collar section. Use different color markers for the body markers and collar marker. Move markers up as work progresses.

Round-About Cropped Cardi Reviewed by Diane Chicklo on 2014-06-14 *****
This is such a neat pattern I made one for a girlfriend who absolutely luved it. I missed it so much hadda make myself one. The pattern moves along very quickly was great, cause these days with grandchildren I'm a crochet and run kinda mommom.
