Hello. Is it possible to make longer sleeves on this ALL dc cocoon cardigan ?


Sunday 1st of October 2023

HI Sherry , you can just add more row to the sleeves.

Your written instructions state to DC in the first chain from the hook then to SC in the remaining chains to the end, turn and chain 2. Your video states to DC in every chain. Did I read incorrectly?

HI Nancy,thank you for spot on so it dc in the remaining chain until the end as the video.

I just started making this today😃 I think my daughters will like it though. Do you have any suggestions to make a toddler and kids size?

Hi Amanda, thanks u so much love love. for toddleer size for my method use her bust size for example if her bust size is 1o inches wide so you will chain to match the 10 wide then add 20 more chain for oversize it. hope this help.
