Cardigan is made to measure according to the standard size chart provided in the pattern. Includes sizes newborn to 12 years. If you are good with crochet, you could easily make this in an adult size using your own custom measurements. (Try taking the measurements from your favorite sweater.)

You’ll also need a button of choice and needle and thread.

The body of the sample cardigan was worked using sc. You can easily use hdc or dc instead to make it go quicker. Cardigan is worked in vertical rows.
