Project Note:

• If you need to change your amount of FHDC on the back panel, the number should be a multiple of 4 plus 2.
• If you need to change the amount of chains on the back panel, the number should be a multiple of 4.
• On all other sections, if you need to change your amount of stitches, it should always be an even number.
• If your armhole needs to be a different size from any listed, then hdc around hole evenly around. Make sure you end with an event amount of sts.
• The amount of sts called for in the pattern is XS. The numbers in the parenthesis are for the other sizes in order. (S,M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL)
• You want to have an even amount of sts in all hdc sections. This lines your sts up to give it a ribbed look.
• The L hook is used for the body of the cardigan and the I hook is only used for the ribbing sections.
• You will not decrease for the sleeve. It will be the same length all the way down. You will make a small cuff that you will sew on and that will bring your sleeve in at the end.

Fold the front side down over the back so the sides line up. The wrong side should be facing outward. Use the chart above to determine your armhole measurement or find your favorite fitting cardigan and measure from the top of the shoulder to under the armpit where the sleeve is attached to the body of the cardigan.
Starting at the top where the fold is and the front panel and back panel meet, measure down along the outside edge. You will be measuring the length you need for your armhole. Place a stitch marker that many inches down on the front panel and back panel.
Starting at the bottom side of the fold, whip stitch the front panel to the back panel stopping at the stitch markers. You will leave this section open to create your armhole.
Move to the other side using the other front panel. Measure the same length for your arm hole and place your stitch markers there. Whip stitch the other side stopping at the stitch markers for the armhole.
Before weaving in ends from strand used to sew up sides, put cardigan on to make sure armholes are an appropriate side.
Using an L hook and with the body folded right side out,
1. Sl st to the bottom of the armhole where you sewed the front and back panel together. Check chart above to find the amount of sts you need for your armholeCh 2, evenly place the hdc sts around armhole, sl st to 1st st
2. Ch 2, turn, (hdc in 3rd loop, hdc in blo) repeat around, sl st to 1st st 46 (50, 54, 58, 62, 66, 70)
3. Repeat row 2 until your sleeve is 2 inches less than the length you would like.

3. Repeat row 2 until you have the amount of rows listed for your size.
4. Sl st blo of last row to end of first row making a circular cuff. Fasten off leaving a long enough tail to sew the arm of sleeve.
Turn the body of the cardigan inside out and make sure the cuff is inside out too. Place 4 stitch markers even around your sleeve and cuff. To do this fold the sleeve in half and place a stitch marker on either end. Fold it in half again so the stitch markers are aligned and in the center of the fold. Place stitch markers on either end.
Sew the cuff to the sleeve making sure each cuff section is sewn onto the sleeve section. Since they are different sizes, this will help you sew them on evenly. Fasten off and weave in ends.
