#218H Hamachi Cardigan Addendum
This is just a pattern addendum to the #218 Pendants Blanket here on Ravelry. You MUST PURCHASE the blanket in addition to this to have the complete Cardigan instructions.
To purchase as a 2-pdf bundle, you can do so at SweaterBabe.com.
NOTE! The yardage estimate above is for the Cardigan (Baby Blanket + Conversion to Cardigan) yardage. Please see below for separate estimates.
I fell in love with my #218 Pendants Blanket, but alas, I’m no baby! But maybe I could convert it into an open cardigan … ?
So, I added a wide Garter stitch border with some extra shaping to get a nice shawl collar and ta-da! My beautiful baby blanket is saved from being stored away or lying dormant on a couch and is now a most-wearable and very stylin’ knit cardigan.
The finished cardigan has a Japanese flair to it with architectural lines. Let’s just pretend this end result was on purpose when I designed the baby blanket ;-)
ONE SIZE ONLY (fits S to L, see size note above). Approx 32” 81.5 cm long down center back and 36 ½ (92.5 cm) wide measured from end to end at middle of armholes.
GAUGE: 22 sts = 5” 12.5 cm and 32 rows = 4” 10 cm in Garter st (when entire row is Garter st), blocked
Approximate total yardage required for the 3 Blanket Sizes included in the Blanket pdf are Baby (Lap, Throw): 990 (1622, 2546) yds 905 (1483, 2328) m.

AGAIN - please NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY THE CARDIGAN ADDENDUM PDF with instructions on how to CONVERT the Baby Blanket into this Cardigan - you must purchase the #218 Pendants Blanket PDF separately to knit the baby blanket that is then converted into this Cardigan.
