Body: Either a cardigan or a pullover may be crocheted out of these squares; the difference is in how they are put together. The sleeves are the same length on both models.

Cardigan - Body: Make 50 squares.
Now join the squares in vertical columns as in Fig. 1
The columns contain the following number of squares:
1st column (center front): = 5 squares, 2nd column: = 5 squares 3rd column (side): = 4 squares, 4th column: = 5 squares, 5th column: = 6 squares (the center back is between the 5th and 6th column), 6th column: = 6 squares, 7th column: = 5 squares, 8th column (side): = 4 squares, 9th column: = 5 squares, 10th column (center front): = 5 squares.
Now join the columns together as in Fig. 2. Join the shoulders in the same way as in Fig. 2 and then join the 2 squares from the center back and the 2 first columns of squares at the center front for the collar.

Sweater - Body: Make 52 squares.
Now join the squares in vertical columns as in Fig. 1.
