Construction
The Diddy Cardigan is a raglan style cardigan worked from the top down. The V shape in the front is achieved by making an increase the first and last stitch of the front panel every 4th row. I find it helpful to mark these increases with stitch markers to keep track. The sleeves are worked directly onto each armhole after the body and bottom ribbing are completed.

Fit
The cardigan is meant to be oversized. It should fit with a positive ease of about 4-10 inches around the chest. The positive ease will be larger for the larger sizes. If you do not like a baggy sweater, I would size down and adjust the length of the body and sleeves to suit your little one. Models are 5 and 7 and are wearing size 5-6.

Materials:
*5.00mm (U.S. H/8) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge.
*I used Hayfield Bonus Aran with Wool in the colour Mill Blue (817) (400g, 840m, 919yds). If you purchase from this link, I will earn a small commission and can continue creating my patterns. Your support means the world to me! See chart below for approximately how much yarn you will need.
