Next, create the two front panels of the cardigan. To do this, chain the same number of stitches as the back panel and work in the seafoam stitch pattern
until the panels reach the desired length.
Step 3: Create the Sleeves
For the sleeves, chain the desired number of stitches for your size and crochet in the seafoam stitch pattern until the sleeves reach the desired length.

Use your tapestry needle to seam the front panels to the back panel at the shoulders. Then, seam the sleeves to the armholes of the cardigan.
Step 5: Create the Collar
To create the collar, begin by picking up stitches along the neckline of the cardigan. Then, crochet in the seafoam stitch pattern until the collar reaches the desired size.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Weave in any remaining ends and block your cardigan to give it a professional finish.
