Heartland Cardy Cardigan Crochet Pattern Pt. 2


Here you will find the pattern for the Heartland Cardy in sizes Large & XLarge.
For the main page of the Heartland Cardy post and for sizes Small & Medium click here.

Materials
J hook 6.0mm
Lion Brand Heartland Yarn in 180 Kings Canyon (251 yards per skein)
Tapestry needle & Scissors

Sizing Notes

Model (me) is super short (4’10”) so for my personal cardigan, I made a medium but made mine 3 rows shorter. You can easily adjust the length by adding or taking away rows in multiples of three for the back panel and both front panels. Everything else in the pattern will stay the same. Adding/taking away 3 rows will add/take away about 2 inches.

Small 32”-34” bust - 3 skeins in Lion Brand Heartland
Medium 36”-38” bust - 4 skeins in Lion Brand Heartland
Large 40”-42” bust - 4 skeins in Lion Brand Heartland
XL 44”-46” bust - 4 skeins in Lion Brand Heartland

I think the sizes run small, if you are on the fence about what size to pick or would rather a bit more of a lose fit - go a size up.

Pattern Notes

Written in US terms

Ch 3 in the beginning rounds count as a stitch. Since the Ch 3 DOES count as a stitch, when making the next stitch, you will not be working into that same ch 3 space rather the next space (unless otherwise stated)

I tend to crochet loosely. Please please check your gauge so your cardigan will not turn out too small.

Abbreviations
DC = double crochet, HDC = half double crochet, Ch = chain, St = stitch(es), FPDC = front post double crochet, BPDC = back post double crochet, DC2tog = double crochet 2 together (AKA decrease)

Gauge: 4” x 4” = 12 stitches x 7 rows in DC

You can find the general construction here on the main post of the Heartland Cardy.
