FREE Crochet Cardigan Pattern (3-6 months)

I was asked if I would consider making a bigger pattern for the popular Baby Bear Newborn Cardigan. Probably it is such a popular crochet baby cardigan pattern because its so easy. The readers request was to use Double Knit Yarn and a 3.5mm hook. to make a simple baby cardigan, suitable for a boy or a girl.  T\he simple method of working top down means it is a very beginner friendly introduction to making baby clothes. I honestly do not make cardigans or sweaters any other way now.
Of course designing a whole new sized item takes time, lots of trials and errors and a few times ripping it out. My designing process is not really straight forward, I work backwards from finished measurements. I am sure there is an easier way however I like to fiddle around and, well basically just do it my way. Eventually I have now worked out the perfect finished size for a 3- 6 month old baby. AND more importantly a simple straightforward pattern.
