A new crochet cardigan

My Canton Cardigan is one of my newer crochet patterns. It has a crossover front and long sleeves. It is made with side-to-side construction. The greatest feature of this cardigan, however, is the textured trim! You can see it so well in this top photo. The trim is at the edge of both front pieces, and at the end of each sleeve. This textured trim is made using post stitches. You can learn about post stitches in my “Post Stitch Post”. You don’t have to sew in the sleeves, but you will have to seam the sides and underarms.

The yarn for this pattern is King Cole Baby Comfort dk in #772 Silver and #1731 Mulberry. It takes 4-6 skeins of the Silver and 1 skein of the Mulberry. You’ll also need a size H/8/5mm and a couple of buttons, one big and one small.

This makes a great lightweight cardigan. The yarn is a very soft blend of acrylic and nylon, so it isn’t going to over hear you, and it will be easy to take care of. The pattern is written in 5 sizes from 35.75 in – 51.75 in (or 102 cm – 131.5 cm) bust circumference. You can buy the pattern for $6.00 on Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy.
