General Instructions: Create a fun and useful gift for a new baby with Tunisian crochet! This gender neutral cardigan has several options: short or long sleeve, one button or three, color blocking or all one color…it’s up to you! We’ll begin with a circular yoke and body worked in one piece from the top down. Easy increases create the circular yoke, followed by a sleeve separation and the body worked even. The sleeves are rectangles worked separately and then joined to the body in the last step.

Supplies: Size K/10.5 (6.5mm) flexible Tunisian crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge), I/9 (5.5 mm) standard crochet hook, yarn needle, ruler, sewing needle and thread to match button. Note: 21” long flexible Tunisian hook is needed to accommodate yoke sts.

Materials: Any #4/Medium (cotton yarn); Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Flamingo (75% pima cotton, 25% acrylic) shown; 250 yards. One (1”) button or 3 (3/4”) buttons.

Gauge: 4” = 13 sts and 16 rows in pattern, blocked
To check gauge, ch 13 with Tunisian hook. Work first 3 rows of yoke. Repeat rows 2 and 3 for a total of 16 rows. Blocked gauge swatch should measure 4”x4” square. If swatch is too big, switch to a smaller hook. If block is too small, switch to a larger hook.

Finished Measurements:
Chest circumference: 18 (19, 20.5, 21.5)”
