The Tie a Ribbon Cardigan is an example of the wonders of knit-look crochet! This romantic, feminine-style is a beautiful and easy to wear cardigan for girls/ladies/women of all ages. The pattern is made to measure using the standard size chart provided in the pattern and includes sizes 0-6 mos up to ladies size 3X. It is easy to customize to get your perfect fit.

Samples were made in size 2 and size 7 and you can see these in the images with this listing. You may use yarn and hook of choice. Samples were made using a fingering (5ply) acrylic yarn and crochet hook size F(3.75 mm).

I threaded a lace ribbon through the textured waist and tied in a bow at the front. You may alternatively leave open, or add a toggle button for an easy front closure.

Skill level: advanced/intermediate

Stitches used include: ch, sl st, sc, hdc, knit-look rib stitch, hdsl (half double slip stitch), dc, fpsc, bpsc.
Pattern includes stitch photos and explanations for any less-common stitches.

Body of the cardigan is worked in one piece. Sleeves and made separately and sewn in, so the only seams are sleeve and armhole seams. This is one of my favorite designs to date. :) Hope you’ll enjoy it too!

Pattern is written in standard American crochet terms.
