Ch – Chain
St – Stitch
Dc – Double crochet
Pattern – X2
Ch 169 (171, 173, 175)
Row 1 – Dc in the 4th chain from your hook and each chain across (your Ch 3 is counted as a st)
Row 2 – Now turn your work and Ch 3, (your Ch 3 at the beginning of the row is classed as your first dc and Ch) skip a st, Dc, *Ch 1, skip a st, Dc* repeat from * to * until the end of the row.
(Please refer to photos as to where to place your first Dc st in this row)
Row 3 – Ch 2, dc in each st across.
From here on you will be repeating rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 19 rows (21, 23, 25)
to sew your cardigan together you will now take one of your rectangles and fold in half. For the sides of your cardigan, you will be sewing the Ch row together. Do not sew the rectangles together at this point. In a zig zag fashion sew up 56 sts (57, 58, 59). Now repeat this on the second rectangle. You should now have two rectangles that look picture 1. (pattern will continue after photos)
For the back of the cardigan lay the two rectangles out next to each other and sew up 70 sts (72, 74, 76). Your cardigan should now look picture 2.
Sew in any lose ends to finish your pattern.
