About Pippa

This crochet cardigan pattern features a variation of the pebble stitch throughout the garment.

The crochet cardigan garment is worked from the bottom up in one panel and split into 3 panels at the top to create the armholes. It is then seamed at the shoulders to connect the panels. Sleeves and trim are added at the end.

Optional inside pockets are worked into the design, and the inside panel is sewn on at the end.

The Pippa Pebble Cardigan crochet pattern comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS-5X.
