Finishing

Lightly steam the squares and sew together in accordance with the chart. Using whip stitches, sew the pieces together through the back loops of the edge stitches. The small flowers on the squares should be positioned so that a large square is formed in the center. The back piece comprises four squares forming a large square and the front pieces are rectangles each formed of two squares.

NOTE At the center of the back, approx. 8 cm of the seam from the neckline down should be left unsewn. This will create a slit at the neck in the back piece to help from the neckline (indicated in red on the chart).

At the end of row 13, switch to color 2 and crochet row 14, which goes round the entire square. This row is shown in blue in the chart. After the last row, leave approx. 50 cm of yarn for sewing together.

Part 5

Next, crochet stripes on the two opposite edges of the large square, as on the sides of the front and back pieces.

Sew the sleeves to the armholes. Align the center of the sleeve with the shoulder seam.

Sew the sleeves’ seams and the side seams.

Try onthe cardigan and check what sleeve length would be right for you. Crochet more or fewer rounds as needed. The sample cardigan has 4 additional rounds of crochet, adding approx. 4 cm.

Crochet the stripes at the cuff in the round, moving from round to round as explained in part 2, when making the granny squares.

Work 1 round with color 3, 2 rounds with color 1, and 1 round with color 2. NOTE When working the last dc round of the cuff, do not work the chain stitches between dc groups. This will narrow the cuff slightly. Finish the edge with 1 round of single crochets, working 1 sc into the back loop of every st. Cut the yarn.

35

Part 6

Front edges and bottom: Join color 2 to the lower right corner of the front piece with a sl st.

36

Belt: Work the belt with color 2. Ch9 for the foundation chain. Row 1: Work 1 dc into the 3rd ch from the hook, and 1 dc into the next six chs = 8 dc. Turn work. Row 2: Ch2 (= 1st dc) and dc 7. Turn work. Repeat row 2 until the belt reaches approx. 180 cm or your desired length. If you prefer, you can work the belt with a smaller hook.

37

Belt loops: Ch 12 and cut the yarn. Leave a little tail at either end for sewing. Attach the belt loops to the side seams at approx. 20 cm from the armpit.

If you wish, you can attach buttons to the edge of the left front piece, with the holes in the pattern serving as buttonholes.
