About: My name is Javeria. My hobbies are knitting ,crochet sewing and also some different type of crafts.

I am crocheting since 2 years. It is fun to make things by hand and also a great use of spare time. I taught myself crocheting by watching youtube videos and enhanced my skills by following patterns and making a remix of youtube videos with my own style. I love different color combinations and use them in my work. Here I am making a beautiful cardigan. I take the idea from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohEfvRjxxhs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGiJSiKRJGo and remix them with my own idea.

Step 1: Material and Abbreviation

Material:

I take two color yarn

Pink: 300 gram

Blue: 250 gram

4.5mm crochet hook

4 beautiful buttons

Abbreviation:

ch= chain stitch

sc= single crochet

hdc= half double crochet

dc= double crochet

ss= slip stitch

Step 2: Lower Body Part of Back

ch 73 with blue color

Row 1: sc through out the row, we have 73 sc

Row 2: ch4, skip 7(including ch4), make shell stitch(2dc, ch1, 2dc in same stitch)in next stitch, *ch2, skip3, 1dc in next stitch, ch2, skip3, shell stitch* repeat. For last 4 ch2, skip 3, 1dc in last stitch. We will get total 9 shells at the end of the row 2.

Row 3: ch2, 1dc in same stitch (this is half shell), *ch2, 1dc in middle of the shell of row2, ch2, 1 shell stitch above the 1dc of row 2* repeat. 2dc in last stitch. We will get 8 shells and 2 half shells at the end of the row 3.

Repeat row 2 and row 3 until we reach row 20 . Now bind off the yarn and cut it.

Step 3: Lower Body Part of Front

We will make two front panels. One for left lower side and other for right lower side, but both are alike.

ch 41 with blue color for both right and left side and follow the same pattern which we have done on lower body part of back.

sc through out row 1, we will get 5 shells at the end of row 2 and 4 shells and 2 half shell at the end of row 3. Repeat row 2 and row 3 until we reach row 20, bind off the yarn and cut it.

Step 4: Upper Body Part of Back

Repeat row 22 until we reach row 30, bind off the yarn and cut it.

For row 31 skip 5 stitches for arm hole attach thread , hdc through out the row , skip last 5 sts for second arm hole. We will get 62 hdc at the end of row 31.

Work hdc on these 21 stitches until we reach row 56. Now for row 57 , sc through out the row on 21 stitches and go through it doing sc on neck line and on front opening. Now work for second row of sc on front opening but do not work for neckline. Work for third row of sc on front opening, bind off and cut the yarn.
