Hdc2tog (Half Double Crochet 2 Together): Yoh and draw up a loop in each of next 2 indicated spaces. Yoh and draw through all loops on hook


INSTRUCTIONS:

The instructions are written for smallest size. If changes are necessary for larger size(s) the instructions will be written thus ( ). When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. 


Step 2

Notes:

 - Cardigan is worked side to side in 1 piece. Ch 2 at beg of row does not count as hdc. Hdc pat sts are NOT worked into hdc (except for very last st of each row). Work hdc pat in sp between sts.
 - To maintain consistent color changes, join new ball of yarn to match last color change of previous ball. This will help to ensure stripe repeat will match as closely as possible. Unused yarn can be used for Cuffs to avoid waste.
