PDF Pattern for the Lightweight Boy's Buttoned Cardigan
In sizes 0-3 months and 3-6 months
This is a lovely textured cardigan, suitable for all weathers, but particularly for slightly warmer days when you don't want anything too heavy.
The pattern works up very quickly, and is easy to make. It uses a classic Cross-Stitch Cluster, for the main body and sleeves of the garment - instructions are given.
You need to know single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, and front and back post double crochet, but if you need any help, I am only a message away.
Materials: 1 skein of light worsted yarn (DK/8ply). A 4mm hook for 0-3 months and a 4.5mm hook for 3-6 months. A yarn needle for tidying up ends, and sewing on buttons. 5 or 6 buttons.
