    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
    • 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:
    • 11-1/2 dc + 7-1/2 rows = about 4" (10 cm).
    • 9 sts = about 2-1/4" (5.5 cm) in Cable pattern.
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • STITCH EXPLANATIONS
    • BPDC (back post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st in front of the BPDC.
    • FPDC (front post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC.
    • BPTR (back post treble crochet) Yarn over twice, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Skip st in front of the BPTR.
    • FPTR (front post treble crochet) Yarn over twice, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. Skip st behind the FPTR.
    • dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

    • PATTERN STITCHES
    • Post Stitch Lines Pattern
    • Row 1 (RS): Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, dc in each st to first post st, *FPDC around post, dc in each st to next post st; rep from * to last post st, FPDC around last post st, dc in each st to end of row.
    • Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, dc in each st to first post st, *BPDC around post, dc in each st to next post st; rep from * to last post st, BPDC around last post st, dc in each st to end of row.
    • Rep Rows 1 and 2 for Post St Lines pattern.

    • Cable Pattern (worked over 9 sts)
    • Row 1 (RS): Skip next 3 sts, FPTR around each of next 3 sts; working behind the 3 sts just made, FPTR around each of the 3 skipped sts, FPDC around each of next 3 sts.
    • Row 2: BPTR around each of next 9 sts.
    • Row 3: FPDC around each of next 3 sts, next 3 sts, FPTR around each of next 3 sts; working in front of the 3 sts just made, FPTR around each of the 3 skipped sts.
    • Row 4: Rep Row 2.
    • Rep Rows 1-4 for Cable pattern.

    • NOTES
    • Cardigan is made in 5 pieces: Back, 2 Fronts, and 2 Sleeves. Each piece is worked from beg at the lower edge.
    • The Back is worked in Post St Lines pattern. Fronts are worked in Post St Lines pattern, with the front bands worked in Cable pattern.
    • Each Sleeve begins with a band worked in Cable pattern, then sts for the Sleeve are worked along one long edge of the Cable band.
    • This pattern includes some crocheter's lingo. When you see ‘– 12 sts’ at the end of a sentence, this is the number of sts there will be after working that row. When the pattern says to ‘work even’, continue in the specified st or pattern and keep the number of sts the same – without increasing or decreasing.
    • When the pattern says to work in Post St Lines pattern "as established," work a double crochet in each dc and a post st around each post st, working front post sts (FPDC) on RS rows and back post sts (BPDC) on WS rows.
    • Our pattern includes diagrams to help visualize how the Cardigan is made and put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before crocheting.
