Ribbon (optional)
Stitches used:
Ch: Chain
Sc: single crochet
Dc: Double Crochet
FPDC: Front Post Double Crochet BPDC: Back Post Double Crochet Sc2tog: Single crochet 2 together

The sweater pattern is designed to have a tapered look at the knee, if you want to opt out of that for your cardigan, then just start with 117st and work Rows 1-6 even no increasing.
If you wish to make a different size other than shown there are a few option you could try, not recommended for the Beginner though.
  1. Use a larger hook and #5 yarn. Just remember by doing this you not only increase the width of your sweater but the length will be longer as well if you follow the pattern below. You may need to adjust for that, possibly by doing less rows of the bow pattern, which are a total of 4 rows. OR
  2. The bow pattern is worked in a multiple of 13, you can also figure out by adding more bows to your sweater or less if you want to try and make it smaller as well. But you will need to adjust the sleeve and neck line as you go. Again, this would be more for the Intermediate to Experienced type Crocheter.

Instructions:
With your yarn and 7.5mm hook make a slip knot and chain 92.
Row 1: in the 3rd chain from your hook make 1 dc, dc in each of the chains across, you will have 90 dc, turn your work.

Row 14-16: Repeat Rows 10-12 DO NOT FASTEN OFF.

The Shoulders
Fold your front panel so that it lines up with the back panel, making sure that the wrong side of your work is facing you.

You will now join the 2 panels together by joining each with a slip stitch, making sure to match stitch for stitch as you go so your work lines up. Ending with the last st from the front panel, fasten off.
You will repeat this for the other shoulder. Turn your work back so the right side is facing you and move on to the sleeves below.


The Sleeves

Switch back to the 7.5mm hook, with your yarn join with a slip st to the middle of the 4sc you had in between your front and back panels.
Round 1: ch1, sc in the same st, sc in the next st, you should now be at the side of your rows, you will work 1 sc in each row, so you should have 16st on the front panel and 16st for the back panel, sc in the last 2st. Place your stitch marker to mark your last st and the beginning of the next round.
Round 2-42: sc in each st around, remembering to replace your stitch marker for every new round. (you can do less or more rows depending on your arm length)
Round 43: [sc in the next 3st, sc2tog] repeat that all around. Round 44: [sc in the next 2st, sc2tog] repeat that all around. Round 45: [sc in next st, sc2tog] repeat that all around. Round 46: dc in each st around.
Round 47-48: FPDC in each st around. Fasten off after round 48. Repeat the same thing for the second sleeve. Hide all loose tails.

The Border
With the right side of your work facing you and the 7.5mm hook join your yarn at the bottom edge of your cardigan, making a sc in the side of the row, working 2sc per dc row, after that working 1sc per row all the way up until you reach the shoulder seam, you will sc in each sc of the back until you reach the ch3 of the bowtie, make 3 sc in that ch3 sp, sc in the sc from the bow tie, 3sc in the next ch3 sp, sc in each sc as it presents itself until you reach the seam, sc in each row until you reach the dc rows, there you will make 2sc for each row. Turn your work.
Rows 2-4: ch1, sc in each st around, turn your work. At the end of Row 4 fasten off and hide all loose tails. Unless you want your border to be wider then continue making rows until you reach your desired border length.


Extra Touch (optional)
Ribbons
Cut about 11 inches of ribbon and you can tie them on the sweater at the bow tie rows, Play with it, maybe add them only to the front border panels or every other bow tie. Once you like it and to secure them you can either tack them in place with some fabric glue or use a matching thread and needle to sew them in place.
