Bebop Cardigan – Lion Brand Yarn Pattern

24082010575
The first time I saw this Bebop Cardigan pattern, I ignored it. Not because it is not beautiful or difficult, but it is for 6-10 years old girl. But, I found out in Lion Brand Yarn Facebook, one of the fan has posted the crocheted pattern that suits her 2 year old daughter. So, I decided to give it a try and made it for my 3 year old Tasneem using a 4mm hook rather than using a thicker yarn and a larger hook (which has been suggested in the pattern).
I was using acrylic yarn to try it out first, before using my cotton yarn that I am selling. This pattern has bobble stitches which is new to me. At least I am learning new stitches whenever I tried out a new pattern. I did not understand how to do it at first, then I googled it on the internet and saw a youtube showing how to do bobble stitches. Then, everything after that went easy. 24082010576

The sleeves part, I was adding a simple border pattern at the edges using white acrylic yarn.

Why three shades of yarn? I was just trying to finish off the leftover yarns. That is why there was three shades. Luckily, it turns out well and adorable.

Hi Anna,
This pattern is for 6-8 year old pattern, I made it smaller by using smaller hook and thinner yarn than recommended in the pattern. Luckily it fits well with my 2 year old daughter.
