Last time we finished 10th Row of the yoke.
Row 11: join a new thread of different color (mine is green), ch3 (count as 1 double crochet (dc)), ch1, skip next dc, dc, *ch1, skip next dc, dc, repeat from * till the end of the row.
Row 12: join in your new thread (mine is pink), ch3, dc in the ch-1 space, continue crocheting 2 dc into each ch-1 sp.
Row 13: Repeat Row 11 (green thread).
Row 14: Repeat Row 12 (yellow thread).
Rows 15-18: Keep repeating Rows 11 and 12 - 2 more times. In my cardigan, I was using one color of thread (green) each odd Row.
Rows 19-35: dc in each stitch across. The number of rows will depend on thickness of thread and the length of cardigan
Next step is to crochet laces for which I have chosen bright pink thread. This model will not have any buttons or fasteners. In the opposite case, don’t forget to make buttonholes or button loops on the edge of the garment.
The main part of the crochet rainbow cardigan is ready but I want to add one small pocket. I know, from my neighbors, that when I was a little girl I was gathering everything in my pockets, so I can only guess how important it is for a little lady :).
Round 1: magic ring, 10 sc.
Round 2: ch3, dc into the same stitch, work 2 dc into the next stitch and all stitch around, slip stitch into third chain of initial ch3 to join the round.
Round 3: join in your new color, ch3, ch1, dc, *ch1, dc, repeat from* till the end of the round, join in 3rd chain.
Round 4: again, join in new color, ch3, dc in the ch-1 sp, continue crocheting 2 dc into each ch-1 sp. Don’t finish the round. Leave unworked 5 ch-1 spaces.
Round 5: ch3, 2 dc, *ch1, 2 dc, repeat from the * until the end of the round.
Round 6: ch3, dc in each st around.
Round 7: ch3, dc in each st around.
Round 8: ch3, 6 dc into the same stitch, sc, *7dc,sc, repeat from * Fasten off
Pocket is ready. Simply sew it. Don’t forget to decorate it with 2 strawberries that you have done before. On the left side of cardigan, sew funny bunny. You are free to make more decorations as you still have the place on the back.
Any questions and comments are more than welcome and share it with your friends!
I really hope you like this project. And yes, keep in mind that this cardigan was made for 2-3 years old girl.
