Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

This crochet cardigan pattern is made by simple stitches so the ridge lines could show up. I didn’t add buttons to this sample ( just a nice brooch would do ). Surely, you can add buttons as you desire. Check out this post for a suggestion: http://beacrafter.com/crochet-overcast-sweater/

Making a long sleeved version is not such a task. Simple add more rounds when you crochet sleeves.

Special stitches used: 

V stitch: ( dc, ch1, dc ) into same stitch or space.

2dc – V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.
