Crochet a basic easy cardigan oversized


So this was my first ever cardigan I crocheted and oh my God, I went through a lot of doubts and was convinced that I will never be able to finish it and get it right, but at the end I was so happy with the result and so proud of my self to be doing such a thing. 

It was actually more of oversized coat than a cardigan, the yarn quality is amazing and the feel is soft and luxurious. I love the color combination for both as I naturally love grey and charcoal colors.

You can choose whichever color you wish and you like, the yarn is a must try.

I have worn this cardigan so much and it's still like new.

I have tried to explain as much as I could however feel free to drop any questions if you need :)

Start sewing the back side with the front sides together, leaving an opening for the arms to sew around .

Then folding one arm start sewing from the side and going down to close the arm.

For the collar, make a magic loop and join it to the upper front side of the coat, start working the scallop stitch like in the initial pattern from side to side for 3 rows, fasten off.
