The Burnside Cardigan crochet pattern by KT and the Squid


This original pattern was written by me (Katy)!

The Burnside Cardigan is stitched from the top down and all the trim is added last with no seaming. You can add buttons, a zipper or both like I did. I really like the look of the buttons but I wanted the front of the sweater to stay closed. If you are going to add just buttons I suggest using at least 6 (I only have 5) to keep it closed better.

What you’ll need:
I hook
H hook
Worsted weight yarn: approx. 340 (440, 550, 640, 760) yards of Lion Brand Heartland.
4-7 stitch markers
5-7 1.25” toggle buttons
1 separating zipper longer than the length of the sweater

Skill level: Intermediate

Children's sizes: chest measurement
2: 21"
6: 25”
8: 26”
10: 28”
