children's cardigan 38 - butterfinger

 

 
 

child_sweater_butterfinger

The possibilities are endless when using DMC cotton, six strand, embroidery floss (comes in 454 colors) for the crocheted flowers. Use only two colors or many colors for crocheting five or as many flowers as you wish. Position them around neckline, cuffs and scattered over the cardigan; also on the hat (we put two). The hat pattern is written for knitting on either straight needles or circular needles. The dropped shoulder, round neck cardigan is easy to knit. The neckline has two rows of single crochet and the center fronts have three rows. There are no buttonholes; snaps are used to close the cardigan.
