How to crochet lace cardigan jacket


Hello everyone! In this video I’ll show you how to crochet a cardigan. The written instruction how to make this top is available at: interunet.com/crochet-short-sleeve-cardigan I will crochet the jacket from bottom to top and crochet the back and two front parts as one piece up to the armholes point. For the size US6, chain loosely one hundred seventy three chain stitches or multiples of twelve chains plus
seventeen additional chains. For this project, I decided to combine a cotton and bamboo yarns of about the same thickness. For the first row work double crochet into each chain to end of the row – one, two, three, four. Insert the hook into the fourth chain and work double crochet. At the end of the first row work three returning chains and turn. Now work again, fourth chain – one, two, tree, four. Double crochet six. After the double crochet six work chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one. So, that way, again – chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one, I will continue to end of the row – to last five chains. At the end of the second row I just worked last five double crochets, three returning chains and turn. For the third row work double crochet six – one, two, three, four, five, six. Then work chain one, skip one chain, and work double crochet eleven. At the end of the third row, after last double crochet eleven, again work one chain, skip one chain
and double crochet six. At the end of each row, work three returning chains. For the fourth row, work double crochet six, one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two. Then make four chains. Skip three – one, two, three and work slip stitch one. Then, just like a mirror reflection – make four chains, skip three – one, two, three and work
double crochet two. Now just repeat the process – again, make one chain, skip one chain. Then above double crochet eleven work double crochet two, chain four, skip three chains, then one slip stitch, and then again make four chains, skip three chains, double crochet two. Again, above last double crochet eleven, I worked double crochet two, chain four, skip three chains, one slip stitch. And then, again, make four chains, skip three chains, double crochet two. Then, make one chain, skip one chain
and double crochet six, as usual. For the fifth row, I worked double crochet six. Then, chain one, skip one chain, double crochet two. Then, make four chains, skip four chains – one, two, three, four and above one slip stitch work again slip stitch, three chains – one, two, three, and into the same base chain, again slip stitch. Then, again make four chains, skip four chains, and again work double crochet two. Then, I just repeat the process – again, I will make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two. Make four chains, skip four chains, above slip stitch slip stitch. After the slip stitch work three chains. And again slip stitch into the same chain. Then, make four chains, skip four chains, and again, double crochet two. That way, I will continue to end of the row. At the end of the row work six double crochets and three chains as usual. For the sixth row, work double crochet six, one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two. Then make one chain. Work triple crochet three into this arch of three chains. Then work one chain and again triple crochet three. After the triple crochet three make one chain, skip four chains and work double crochet two above double crochet two of the previous row. Then, just repeat the process – again, one chain skip one chain, double crochet two. Again, chain one, triple crochet three into the arch of three chains. Then again, chain one, triple crochet three, one chain, skip four chains, double crochet two and so on. At the end of the sixth row, after last repeat, work one chain, skip one chain and double crochet six. Seventh row. Work as usual, double crochet six, one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two, then make three chains. Then skip four – one, two, three, four, And under this chain, work – under – in between triple crochets, single crochet one, then, again three chains, skip four chains and work double crochet two above double crochet two of the previous row. Then, just repeat the process. Again, one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two. Then, make three chains, single crochet one under this chain. Then, again, make three chains, double crochet two, above double crochet two and so on. That’s what you should have at the end of my seventh row, And my eighth row I will work like my third row. So, I will work double crochet eleven above each repeat. I crocheted my eighth row like my third row, working eleven double crochets above each repeat. So, now you see squares. And my ninth row I will work like my second row. After the ninth row, tenth and all other rows, work like your first row – just double crochet to end. After you crocheted about ten double crochet rows, continue working the double crochet rows using a smaller size crochet hook. When you crochet about fifteen double crochet rows, using this smaller crochet hook, begin to decrease chains using this, larger size crochet hook. For that, work two chains, turn, insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four and work double crochet. And I will work double crochet to end of the row. This way, I decreased one chain. I worked double crochets to last two chains, and now I will work the decrease on this side of the row as well. Skip one chain, work double crochet one. Then make two returning chains, and turn. And again, insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four, and work double crochet to last two chains again. So, that way I will decrease two chains in each row. After the eight rows – one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, of the decrease, I should have sixteen chains less. I already crocheted one front piece, and now I will show how to crochet the second front piece, like a mirror reflection to this one. For each front piece, use thirty two chains, or multiples
of twelve chains plus eight additional chains. Attach the yarn, make three chains. I will not decrease from my right side and I will continue
decreasing from my left side. Then, I will work like my second row. So, I will insert my hook into the thirty second chain and work double crochet two. Then, I will work chain one, skip one, double crochet one. Then, again, chain one, skip one, double crochet one and so on. At the end of the row, work double crochet three, then skip one chain and work double crochet one. Then, work two chains and turn. For the second row, insert the hook into fourth chain – one, two, three, four – to decrease one chain, and work double crochet three. Then, work as usual – chain one, skip one chain, double crochet eleven and so on. At the end of the row, after last double crochet eleven, work one chain, skip one chain, and double crochet two. Then work three chains, and turn. Insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four and work double crochet two, chain one, skip one chain, again double crochet two. Then, make four chains, Skip three – one, two, three and work one slip stitch. Then again, make four chains, skip three – one, two, three and work double crochet two. And then, just repeat what you just did here. At the end of the third row make one chain, skip one chain. Then, work double crochet one, and one decrease. For that, yarn over, pull the yarn through the following chain, and through the next chain. Then, draw the yarn through the first three loops on your hook, and then, through the two loops on your hook. At the end of the row, make two returning chains. For the fourth row, work double crochet one into the fourth chain from your hook. Then, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two. And then, just continue the pattern regular way – make four chains, skip four chains, into the slip stitch chain make slip stitch. Then, three chains. Again, work one slip stitch into the same chain. Then again, make four chains, skip four chains, double crochet two and so on. At the end of the row work chain one, skip one, double crochet two. And then, work three returning chains. Fifth row. Continue the pattern as usual – double crochet two, one chain, skip one chain, again double crochet two, make one chain, skip four chains, and work in the arch three triple crochet. Then one chain. Then again, three triple crochet into the same chain. Then, make one chain, skip four chains, double crochet two and so on. At the end of the row, after last double crochet two, skip one chain, work double crochet one. Then, work two returning chains and turn. For the sixth row, insert the hook into fourth chain, as usual – one, two, three, four – and work double crochet two. Then three chains – one, two, three. Then, skip four – one, two, three, four – and under this chain work single crochet one. Then again, make three chains, and again, above double crochet two, work double crochet two and so on. At the end of the row work double crochet two, three returning chains and turn. For the eleventh row work double crochet two, one chain, skip one chain, then double crochet eleven. Again, make one chain, skip one chain and double crochet nine. After the double crochet nine, skip one chain, work double crochet one and two returning chains. Eighth row. Insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four and work double crochet one. Then, continue the row similar to the first row. Chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one. Then again, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet one and so on. At the end of the row, work double crochet one, and three returning chains, then turn. For the ninth row, work double crochets all the way across. At the very end work one decrease. As usual, skip one chain and double crochet one. Then, work two returning chains and turn. The tenth row, work like your eighth one. Eleventh row will be similar to the second row, but work just one repeat. At the end of the row, after last five double crochets, skip one chain, double crochet one – just continue regular decrease on this side – two returning chains and turn. Twelfth row work similar to the third row. Work double crochet five. After the double crochet five make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two, then make four chains, skip three chains, one slip stitch. Then, make four chains again, skip three – one, two, three, work double crochet two. Then, chain one, skip one, double crochet two and three returning chains. Work thirteenth row like your fourth row, and after last double crochet three, skip one chain, work double crochet one and two returning chains. Fourteenth row work similar to the fifth row. So, after double crochet three, one chain, skip one chain, double crochet two – make one chain, triple crochet three into arch, and then one chain, again triple crochet three into the same arch and so on. Work the fifteenth row like your sixth row, and after double crochet two, chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one, and then cluster. Sixteenth row. Insert the hook into the fourth chain – one, two, three, four – double crochet one. Then, make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet eleven. I crocheted sixteen rows for each front part. To work the back part, I will skip four chains, attach the yarn, and make three chains to pick up a height. Then, I will work six repeats or use seventy nine chains – multiples of twelve chains plus seven additional chains, because I will not work six double crochets at the begging and ending of each row, but just three double crochets. And then, I will repeat the pattern, starting from the second row. Insert the hook into the following chain and work double crochet one. Then, second insert, and then, just work chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one to end of the row. At the end of the first row, when you use all seventy nine chains, after three double crochets, this should be your last seventy ninth chain, do not work five chains to the front part, make three returning chains and turn. Now I will continue the pattern regular way without decreasing chains. So, after the double crochet three, I will work like here – chain one, skip one chain, double crochet eleven and so on, until I crochet sixteen rows in total. That’s what you should have so far, and for each shoulder piece work seventeen double crochets. Join two shoulder pieces together, And continue crocheting the pattern in the round to make sleeves. For that, make four chains. Then work one double crochet. Then, just work chain one, one double crochet to end of the round. At the end of the first round, after last double crochet one, make one chain, and work one slip stitch into the third chain. One, two, three – one slip stitch. Count you chains again – you should have seventy two chains and one chain on your hook. For the second round, make three chains to pick up a height, and then work just double crochet to end. At the end of each round, work slip stitch into the third chain from the starting point. For the third round, make four chains, skip one chain, work double crochet one, and then continue chain one, skip one chain, double crochet one and so on to end of the round. At the end of the third round, work one slip stitch into the third chain as usual. Then, make three chains, and work double crochet ten. After the double crochet ten, make one chain, skip one chain and then work double crochet eleven. And continue that way to end of the round. Make one chain, skip one chain, double crochet eleven. At the end of the round, make one chain, skip one chain, and work one slip stitch into the third chain, as usual. Then, make three chains, and work one double crochet. Make four chains, skip three – one, two, three, and work one slip stitch. Then again, four chains. Again, skip three chains, and work two double crochets. Make one chain, skip one chain, work two double crochets, and so on – just continue the pattern regular way. So, again, make four chains, skip three chains, work one slip stitch. Then again, make four chains, skip three chains, work double crochet two and so on to end of the round. At the end of the fifth round, after last two double crochets, make one chain and work one slip stitch into the third chain. For the sixth round, make three chains, work one double crochet. Then, make four chains. Skip four chains, and again – in a chain – slip stitch chain – work one slip stitch, then three chains, and again, into the same chain work one slip stitch, and four chains. Four. And again, skip four chains, then work double crochet two. After that, make one chain, skip one chain, and again, double crochet two above double crochet two and repeat the process. That way, continue to end of the round. At the end of the round, make one chain, skip one chain and work slip stitch into the third chain. For the seventh round, make three chains and one double crochet, as usual. Then make one chain, skip four chains – into the arch – triple crochet three, one chain, triple crochet three. Then again, one chain, double crochet two above double crochet two, and so on to end of the round. For the eighth round, make three chains to pick up a height, then work one double crochet, as usual. Make three chains and work one single crochet. Then again, make three chains, and double crochet two. That way I will continue to end of the round. Work ninth round like fourth round, using a smaller size crochet hook. Again, double crochet ten, chain one, skip one, double crochet eleven and so on. Tenth round I worked like my third round, and eleventh round I worked like my second round. Twelfth round. Skip two chains, and work half double crochet seven into one chain. After the half double crochet seven, skip two chains again and work one half double crochet. Then again, skip two chains and work seven half double crochets into one chain again. And then just repeat the process – skip two, half double crochet one. Then again, skip two chains, half double crochet seven into one chain and so on to end of the round. At the end of the round, after last shell, skip two chains, yarn over, insert the hook into this chain, pull the yarn through. Then, draw this last loop on your hook through these two. Cut the yarn and secure it. Crochet shell pattern for the edges, as you did for your sleeves, sew two buttons and make one button loop. For that, work just fifteen chains.
