Last time we finished 16th Row of the yoke.
Row 17: 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 18: 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 19: Repeat Row 17 (green thread).
Row 20: Repeat Row 18 (yellow thread).
Rows 21-24: Keep repeating Rows 17 and 18 - 2 more times. In my cardigan, I was using one color of thread (green) each odd Row.
Rows 25-41: 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.
