How to Ccrochet a Cukado Cardigan I show you in this crochet pattern. The Cukado Cardigan “Boston” has a simple straight shape, is simply crocheted and fits all Cukado dolls.
For the Cukado Cardigan to fit all Cukado dolls you should crochet it with a comparable yarn size and needle size as the Cukado Amigurumi.
For the Cukado Cardigan, we first crochet the middle part from top to bottom in rows with double crochet stitches (UK!). Once the middle part is done we can crochet the sleeves in spiral rounds with double crochet stitches (UK!) directly on it. Finally, we sew a few buttons on the button placket.
We crochet the middle part for our cardigan from top to bottom in rows of double crochet stitches (UK!). In some rows we crochet more lifting-chain stitches than usual to get button pleats for the button placket.
The sleeves for the cardigan we crochet directly to the middle part. You start in the back corner of the armhole at the middle part.
We crochet in spiral rounds with double crochet stitches (UK!) and start with a slip stitch and crochet in this stitch also the first double crochet stitch (UK!). We crochet around with double crochet stitches (UK!) and crochet into the stitches at the side, so we come to 16 stitches. Now you just continue crocheting in spiral rounds.
The cardigan has a nice placket on the front. The loops were created by the many lifting-chain stitches in some rows. All you have to do is sew buttons on the other side of the button placket. Here you try out first if your buttons just fit through the button loops. Then you sew the buttons on the other side and secure the threads inside.
