Step by step Pattern (Summary)

Create the Wrist Cuffs

  • Use a slip knot to start.
  • Chain 12, which determines the length of the cuffs.
  • Skip the first chain, then do single crochets in each remaining chain, making 11 single crochets in total for the first row.
  • Chain 1 and turn your project.
  • Make single crochet back loops in each row stitch until the desired cuff length is achieved (22 rows were made in your example, creating a cuff 8.5 cm by 19.5 cm long).

Construct the Sleeves

  • Join the two sides of the cuff together with single crochets.
  • Then, do 3 rounds of single crochets around the top of the cuff.
  • Start the granny square pattern from this point, creating clusters of 3 double crochets per stitch.
  • Follow the granny square stitch pattern until the sleeve has reached the desired length (in your example, from the beginning of the granny square pattern you created 26 rounds for a total of 53 cm).
  • Finish off by doing single crochets and slip stitches around the bottom of the sleeve to prevent it from stretching.

Create the Squares for the Cardigan Body

  • For the back of the cardigan, crochet a Granny square that measures half of your bust measurement (for your cardigan, this was 50cm X 50cm).
  • For the front of the cardigan, crochet 4 smaller squares – in your example, these were 24cm X 24cm.

Assemble the Cardigan

  • Join the squares for the front as per the desired design.
  • Attach the assembled front squares to the back square.
  • Sew the tops of the granny squares to create the shoulders.
  • Sew the attached squares to the sleeves, taking care to align stitches.
  • Finally, using the same yarn, sew up the sides of the cardigan to finish your project.
