Finished Bust 48 (52, 56, 60) in. (122 (132, 142, 152.5) cm)

Note: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

GAUGE:
12 dc + 7 rows = about 4" (10 cm).
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

NOTES:
Cardigan is made in 5 separate pieces: Back, 2 Fronts and 2 Sleeves. Each piece is worked from lower edge up.
Back, Fronts and Sleeves are made with A. Edging and collar are made with B.
To change yarn color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
When ‘– 12 sts’ appears at the end of a row, this is the number of sts there will be after working that row.
Pattern includes diagrams to help visualize how the Cardigan is made and put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before starting to crochet. The Cardigan is easy to make, but having the big picture will make it even easier.

STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
