Level 3 Crocheted Cardigan

Lion Brand® Lion's Pride® Woolspun®


13 sts + 11 rows = about 6 in. (15 cm) over Rows 1-8 using larger hook.

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.

Level 3 Crocheted Cardigan Reviewed by Twana Hughes on 2015-02-23 ****
With some help from I was able to complete this project. For the individual who tries this pattern, after the Yoke (Joining Row), when increasing and decreasing go "over/around" the sleeves. I hope this helps. Absolutely beautiful.
