After I designed the summer dress I published yesterday, I decided to design something extra to to go with it. The result is this cute little cardigan. I think it gives the dress an entirely new look.
This cardigan also works with any of the other child dress patterns I’ve designed. It only uses a small amount of thread and only takes about 30 minutes to make.
You will need:
- a size 10/1.30 mm crochet hook
- #10 cotton crochet thread
- a needle, to weave in ends
