Calico Critter Child Cardigan

 

IMG_1204

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
  • scissors
Glossary of terms used in this pattern:

ch = chain      sl-st = slip-stitch      sc = single crochet      dc = double crochet      st(s) – stitch(es)
