Assembly:

  1. Turn your sweater/cardigan inside out, line up the back and side from the bottom, you can sc them together or a simple whip st, I did mine the sc way, make sure each st is matched up and secure them together all the way up to the cuff, repeat for the other side.

  2. The collar: By this stage you will notice that the collar is too wide, so we have to pick up and crochet st’s around the collar.

  3. Row 1.Begin in the top corner of the right front, join yarn with a sl st and make 1 sc in same place, 1 sc in the next space, skip 1 space, 1 sc in next, all the way around, you will have approx 38 sc, ch 1 and turn ( no need for perfection here a st or 2 out will be fine)

  4. Row 2. *1 sc in next 2 sc, sc next 2 sc together (decrease made), 1 sc in next 2 sc, * repeat from *to* to end, finish off.
     
  5. You may like to make the collar a row or 2 longer, you can do this with out decreasing.
     
  6. Now if you haven’t already, get out that needle and sew in loose ends, add buttons to right front, as many that suits you.
     
  7. Now you can be a little fancy and add some nice picot edging around the sleeves or collar, add a flower or even make it in a two tone color.
     
  8. Note the spacing at the top of the front edge's where I have placed a button each side, this is the style of the sweater and I have added the 2 buttons for simple decoration.
