Crochet Cardigan for Olivia

Olivia’s Crochet Cardigan

Crochet is something I love doing & making things for family members are my favourite things to make. I’ve made this lovely little cardigan for Olivia, she loves cardigans, so she is super easy to make things for & I really love making things for all my grand children.

It’s a similar pattern I used to make this one a couple of years ago, but I increased the with of each section. I guessed at the section stitches & only had to undo one of the sleeves, which I’d made too big as Olivia’s arms a very thin & they looked like kimono sleeves on her.

I’ve now added a belt, just a plain cream one, as I struggled to find any buttons to tie in with the colours I’d chosen, but took this picture before hand.

The yarn I used was a double knit (DK) one, in cream & pink. The stitches used where chain, double crochet, & singles crochet to join the sides & make up the sleeves. It’s a really easy cardigan to make.

I’m thinking of making a skirt for her in the same colours, maybe more of the pink with the cream as the accent colour. It would be lovely to wear with cream tights & boots, thick enough to keep her body warm, whilst she’s out & about. I should have enough wool to complete it.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Have you done any crafting lately? Do let us know what you’ve made if you have.
