Part 1 in the video
Crochet the cardigan from the top to bottom.
Make a foundation chain of 60 chains. I count all the loops including the loop on the hook.
1st row (right side) – h4ch, trc1, Vst.1, trc14, Vst.1, trc22, Vst.1, trc14, Vst.1, trc1 + RC3
2nd row – h4ch, inc1, Corner1*, trc14, Corner1, trc22, Corner1, trc14, Corner1, inc1 + RC3
*Corner – (inc1 into a trc ch, Vst.1 under a ch, inc1 into a trc ch) above Vst of the previous row
3rd row – h4ch, inc1, [trc to Vst of prev.row, Corner1] x 4, trc to last 1 ch; inc1 + RC3
4 – 17 rows = 3rd row
Work as many rows as necessary until your front and back parts will be wide enough to your chest circumference accordingly.
Join front and back parts together
18th row – h4ch, inc1, [trc to Vst of prev.row, inc1 into 1st trc ch of Vst, trc1 under a ch of Vst, skip chs to next Vst of prev.row (shoulder part), trc1 under a ch of Vst, inc1 into 2nd trc ch of Vst] x 2, trc to last 1 ch; inc1 + RC3
Decrease chs underarms
19th row – h4ch, trc to back part (underarm), dec1, trc to 2nd front part (underarm), dec1, trc to end + RC3
20 – 26 rows = 19th row
Decrease and increase chs
27th row – h4ch, trc to end + RC2
28th row – h4ch, trc to back part, inc1, trc to 2nd front part, inc1, trc to last 2 chs; dec1 + RC2
29th row – h4ch trc to last 2 chs; dec1 + RC2
Alternate the 28th and 29th rows until you crochet the desired length of the cardigan keeping in mind that you will have about 2 inches wide border.
Leave the body for now, you’ll work with that later.
