Heart Stitch Cardigan

Heart Stitch Cardigan

"I made this crochet cardigan for 4 or 5 year old girls. It is very easy to start. In this cardigan or girl jacket I used black and pink 2colors crochet yarn, both of the colors are a good combination; I like both of the colors very much for my little girl. You have to choose light worsted yarn for the summer cardigan; it is very comfortable for your children. If you don’t want to make the sleeves, make the edges of the armhole’s in different edges designs. I took one picture for you. I used the picot stitch for the edges of the armhole."

I told you that this cardigan was made only for 4 or 5 year olds but if you want to make the larger size continue increasing rounds. In this cardigan I used the special stitch heart stitch. Some people use in this stitch a treble crochet or puff stitch. I thought it would be a great and beautiful stitch to use in many things like sweaters, baby blankets or woman shawls. The crochet heart stitch consisting of 3 rows repeat using two different colors. The crochet heart stitch is worked using a multiple of 7+1 chains.
