Crochet Cardigan


Materials
6 mm hook US J/10 hook
Big Twist Yarn
Yarn Needle
Scissors
46 cm Zipper

Note: The size I made was large. When getting the right size make sure it fits around your bust before you continue. If you skip this step and don't get the right size you will have to start all over and that is never fun.
Body:

Row 1: Ch 136 + 1 for turning chain and fit the chain
around your chest, the ends should almost touch each
other without stretching it.

Note: You need to make sure this fit right, I had to take this apart 3 times because as you crochet it tends to get bigger, so make sure the ends almost touch each other without stretching.

Row 2: 1 hdc in each ch, (136)

Row 3 – 6: Ch 1, 1 hdc in the back loops only.

Row 7 – 50: Ch 1, 1 hdc in both loops.

Front:

Row 51: 1 hdc in next 34 st's, turn.

Row 52: hdc 2together, 1 hdc in next 33st's, turn.

Row 53: Ch 1, 1 hdc in next 32 st's, hdc 2together, turn.

Row 54: hdc 2together, 1 hdc in next 31 st's, turn.

Row 55: Ch 1, 1 hdc in next 30 st's hdc 2together, turn.

Row 56 - 59: Ch 1, 1 hdc in each st, turn. (29)

Row 60: ch 1, 1 hdc in next 28 st's, hdc 2together.

Row 61: hdc 2together, 1 hdc in next 27 st's, turn

Row 62: Ch 1, 1 hdc in next 26 st's, hdc 2together, turn.

Row 63: hdc 2together, 1 hdc in next 25 st's, turn.

Row 64: Ch 1, 1 hdc in next 24 st's, hdc 2 together, turn.

Row 65 - 69: Ch 1, 1 hdc in each st

Repeat rows 51 to 69 for other side, finish off and leave long tail for sewing.

Back: 

Row 51: Skip 5 st's 1 hdc until you are 5 st's away from the other front side.

Row 52: hdc 2together, 1 hdc to end, turn.

Row 53: hdc 2together, 1 hdc to end, turn.

Row: 54: hdc 2gether, 1 hdc to end, turn.

Row: 55 - 69: Ch 1, 1 hdc in each to end, turn.

Now you need to fold the front part over to make the cardigan with your yarn need sew the tops together.

Sleeves:

Row 1 - 6: hdc 54 st's evenly around, join with sl st, ch 1.

Row 7: 1 hdc in next 9 st's, hdc 2together repeat to end.

Row 8 - 12: 1 hdc in each st. join

Row 13: 1 hdc in next 8 st's, hdc 2together repeat to end.

Row 14- 40: 1 hdc in each st. join

Do same thing for other arm.

Note: Every ones arm shape is different so you made need to do  more or less decreasing.

Last thing to do is 1 sc for edging and put on zipper I used a sewing machine but you can also sew on by hand.
