lion brand® ice cream® big scoop® carroll gardens crochet hooded cardigan

Looking for a crochet project that’s really special? We think this teensy hooded cardigan is the answer. One ball of Lion Brand® Ice Cream® Big Scoop® yarn is enough for the whole thing. Since each skein is self-striping, you won’t have to switch colors as you work – it couldn’t be easier!
Step 1
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 1 year (2-3 years, 4 years)
   -  Finished Chest: About 21½" (23", 25"), (54.5 (58.5, 63.5) cm)
   -  Finished Length: About 10" (11", 12½"), (25.5 (28, 32) cm)
   -  This pattern is written for the smallest size, with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow this pattern more easily, circle all the numbers pertaining to your size before you begin.
 
GAUGE: 17 dc + 10 rows = about 4" (10 cm); please be sure to check your gauge.


SPECIAL STITCH:
   -  Rev Sc (Reverse Single Crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
 
 
PROJECT NOTES:
   -  The cardigan’s body is crocheted in one piece, beginning at the lower edge.
   -  At the armholes, the piece is divided, and the front sections and back are worked separately.
   -  The sleeves and hood are crocheted separately, then sewn to the body.
   -  The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 1 - Lion Brand® Ice Cream® Big Scoop Yarn – Mint
