Sometimes we can come across projects we think are just extraordinary, and this is one we fell in love with right away. Nothing old-fashioned or dull about granny squares when you can use them to create this amazing long cardigan.
This would surely be a labour of love and take you quite some time to complete, but wow, would it be worth it to step out in this. If you love crochet, then you can show it off with this jacket for sure. How many people do you think would come up to you in the street and ask about it. I lot we think. Maybe you could take orders!

Designer tips for making a larger size –
My recommendations for larger sizes would be to use a larger crochet hook as well as making more rounds on your granny squares. Working a repeat of round 6 once or twice should make your squares larger. You may also make this longer by adding more squares to the length of your cardigan. Another suggestion would be to add additional rounds around each panel when you single crochet around each piece to give it a larger size/width to accommodate your size. To determine the fit of the upper arm: You will have to take your upper arm measurement and make sure your squares are made accordingly. ALL SQUARES HAVE TO BE THE SAME SIZE IN THIS ENTIRE PROJECT.
