Free Baby Crochet Pattern-Button Cardigan UK – This easy and simple cardigan has been created using double knitting random colour yarn, using 4.00mm and 4.50mm hooks.

Crocheted with a two row repeat of V and treble crochet stitches. I have used a ribbed edge on the hem, sleeves and button bands, hope you enjoy.
