Have you finished the body of your Painted Canyon Cardigan? Grab it and your hook and yarn because we are ready to add the hood, edging, and to crochet the pockets. This week is a doozy! (But you’re in good hands!)
Painted Canyon Cardigan: Part THREE
In part THREE of this CAL, we are working up the hood, then sewing it shut with the Mattress Stitch. You’ll remember this method of stitching from part two. 😉 Next we’ll add the edging to the body, and crochet the pockets. This week is the busiest week of the entire crochet along, but by the end of it you’ll feel more confident making cardigans. I promise!
Just joining us? Make sure you check out the Materials & Dates post for all of the information needed to participate. I do recommend having the printed version of the pattern (for the size you are making) in front of you, or otherwise available for easy/frequent referencing.
SIZES OF THE PAINTED CANYON CARDIGAN:
The hood itself is not difficult, and the edging is described and shown in detail in the video below. The most important thing is to make sure you are following the stitch counts and row counts for the pattern size you are making. In the videos for this crochet along I am making the 2/3T size. At the end of part three, your cardigan-in-progress should look like this:
