Patty Cake Crochet Cardi – Free pattern from Knitpicks!
Patty Cake Cardi is a one-piece, top down, tri-color baby sweater made with DK or Sport weight yarn. The pattern begins with a round yoke using the first color, then the first row of the shell pattern uses the second color. The body and arms use the third color and varying shell sizes to provide a subtle shaping. The second color is used again for the arm and body edging, with the body edging containing built-in buttonhole loops to allow for easy placement of the three 5/8” buttons. Using a size J (6mm) hook provides a soft drape to the fabric for a comfortable fit. The cardigan also looks great with a single color, or with two colors.
